Description

Incredible for its dark, almost black buds, held upright and rising about a foot above the foliage. As the flowers open, they become more pendulous and turn a dark violet purple. This is often regarded as a florist's variety but is an easy garden plant, performing best in a sunny, well-drained spot.

Care Tips

Agapanthus grow best in full sun. May take 2-3 years to establish but after this they will grow in to long-flowering clumps. Ideal for container growing as resticting roots promotes flowering and pots can be moved to sheltered places for winter.
