Genus Description Agapanthus is a genus of about 10 species of vigorous perennials, some of them evergreen, from southern Africa. The evergreen species occur in coastal areas, the deciduous ones in moister, mountain grassland in inland regions. They form bold clumps of large, strap-shaped, usually arching, often deep green leaves, and bear rounded, intermediate, or pendent umbels of many tubular, bell or trumped shaped, blue or white flowers. The inflorescences are good for cutting, and are followed by decorative seed heads. Grow in a border or in large containers. Most hybrids are deciduous and usually hardier than the species, with dense, rounded umbels, to 8 inch across, of 1 inch long flowers, and with leaves to 18 in long, sometimes more.
Care Tips
Cultivation Grow in fertile, moist but well drained soil in full to partial shade. Where marginally hardy, grow against a wall and mulch in late autumn. In containers, grow in soil-based potting mix. Water freely when in growth sparingly in winter. Apply a balanced liquid fertilizer monthly from spring until flowering. Overwinter in a cool, bright spot and water sparingly until growth resumes.
Pests and Diseases Slugs and snails may be a problem. Bacterial soft rot can be a problem during propagation.
