Most often seen as a florist’s cut flower, Agapanthus is not difficult to grow in the garden.
In mild winter areas, choose a sunny, well-drained spot and enjoy the large drumstick heads of flowers from midsummer on.
In colder regions, these are best grown in a pot or tub, to be wintered indoors; in late fall, put plants into a cool basement for a couple of months, bring to a sunny window in March and begin to water sparingly until growth resumes.
Attractive to butterflies. Easily divided in early spring. This strain features flowers in a range of light and dark blue shades.
