    Large, rounded umbels of violet-blue, trumpet-shaped flowers, top the upright stems of this impressive agapanthus from midsummer. The flowers appear in abundance and are distinguished by a deeper purple stripe that runs down the centre of of each flaring petal, giving them a two-tone effect. It is also one of the hardier (deciduous) types - and the a purplish flush to the base of the lush green foliage is an added bonus.

  • 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 keep in mind that many believe that these plants will produce more flowers if the roots are constricted.
  • Humans/Pets: Harmful if eaten
