A beautiful Agapanthus featuring gigantic sized white tipped petals that have a violet-blue base, forming big, rounded clusters.. A clump-forming perennial, native to Africa, the plant is fully hardy with rich green strap shaped leaves. Does best in full sun on well drained, moist soil. The name agapanthus comes from the Greek 'agape', meaning love, and 'anthos', meaning flower, translating broadly as 'the flower of love'

Care instructions

The Agapanthus plant needs a well-drained but moisture retaining soil. However it will not tolerate water logged soil. It does best in a warm, sheltered position in full sun for most of the day. In colder areas it is best protected over winter with a dry mulch of sand or straw. Apply a 15-22cm deep layer around plants in autumn or early winter and remove in spring before growth starts. Plants may need dividing about every three years in the spring; otherwise they won’t bloom exceptionally well.
