  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September

    This striking Agapanthus has a compact head of drooping, dark violet blue flowers in July. The buds as they emerge seem almost black and are held erect, slowly elongating and finally becoming pendulous as they open. A deciduous cultivar, which is tougher than the evergreens - and therefore hardy in most parts of the country in a sheltered, sunny spot.

  • Garden care: Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser throughout the growing season. Towards the end of September ease back on the watering and feeding of plants in containers to allow the foliage to toughen up. Keep reasonably dry during the winter and protect the crowns with a dry mulch in the autumn. Divide plants that have become too big in spring, but remember you will often get more flowers when the roots are constricted.
