Description

With a vase life of 10 days or more, I love the airy, mini agapanthus-like flowers of Triteleias, invaluable for the garden and vases in June and July. This gradually spreads and naturalises — we have it all around the edge of our fruit cage.

Care Tips

They like a warm, sunny position in the garden that does not get waterlogged. A good layer of mulch over the winter will protect them from frost and winter wet.
