Agapanthus inapertus ssp hollandii / Drooping Agapanthus / Seeds

A lovely and unusual pendulous form of Agapanthus. Plants have grey-green foliage and spikes of blue flowerheads in summer,sitting well above the foliage.  Agapanthus looks great as part of a border or grown in clumps/rows within the garden and along pathways or driveways.   It is a good container plant. In flower, plants grow up to 1.2m tall.


Agapanthus prefers a rich well drained soil in a sunny or partially shaded site, with plenty of water in the summer.  These are generally hardy in the UK as the leaves die down in winter and start regrowing again in spring.  If in doubt, cover the plant with mulch over winter or grow in a container and bring into a greenhouse.  Well drained soil is needed for survival over winter.

Grow The leaves and flowers die down in winter, when the dead material can be cleared away, and they start growing again in spring.  Plants benefit from mulching over winter to protect from frost.  Mature plants can be divided in spring.
