The leaves of this perennial can be lost in the winter. In colder climates or more exposed gardens, the leaves may be lost completely, however, the plant will have fresh new growth in the spring. 

Size: 10.5cm potted plant

Position: full sun

Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil 

Rate of growth: average

Flowering period: July to September

Hardiness: half hardy (will need protection from frost in winter)

From July to September this blue form of African lily blooms with ‘trumpet-shaped’ flowers upon rigid green stalks. It is an excellent addition to gardens and thrives in a sunny border or patio container and in fertile, moist, and well-drained soil. If temperatures drop below zero, container specimens need to be overwintered in a frost-free environment.

Plant care: You should keep plants well-watered during the growing season and feed them with a balanced liquid fertiliser every month until they bloom. After the plant blooms, ease back on watering and feeding so the leaves can toughen up. The plant's crowns should be protected from hard frosts by using a deep, dry mulch or being grown in pots so they can be overwintered in an unheated greenhouse. Agapanthus that has grown too large in spring can be divided, but remember you will usually get more flowers when the roots are constricted.
