Description

Agapanthus inapertus is a deciduous perennial from South Africa with large umbels of blue trumpet-shaped flowers - slightly drooping - and strap-shaped leaves. It loses its leaves in the late autumn and is particularly suited to colder locations where a heavy mulch will ensure its roots stay protected during the winter months. Flower colouring is somewhat variable but these are a pale mid-blue.

Agapanthus like copious quanties of fertiliser during the growing season and respond well to liquid seaweed and potash-based feeding during spring and summer to encourage them to flower. They like to be well-watered throughout the growing season but tolerate periods of low rainfall.

It is advisable to winter mulch with bark chippings, straw or leaves from late October.
