Which Agapanthus is Best for You?
Here's our favourites:
FOR THE BACK OF THE BORDER
Dark dramatic Agapanthus Black Magic has deep purple clusters of hanging bells, tall and elegant and the darkest agapanthus we offer.
Purple Cloud is very popular, also elegant with deep blue-purple rounded flowerheads on long stems.
The classic agapanthus, Blue is sturdy, clear sky blue, and seed-grown for subtle variation in colour and height to give a natural cottage garden feel. White is Blue's counterpart, tall, clean, classy and lovely against a green hedge.
FOR POTS AND CONTAINERS
Compact Silver Baby shades its petals from a silver-blue tip to a white centre, a very pretty effect. It doesn't mind humidity either, great for coastal gardens, and it flowers from a young age (even as tubestock).
Tiny and perky, Peter Pan is a little cutie, with subtly striped pale blue blooms and slender foliage. Repeat flowering through the year in rich royal purple, Ozbreed's Sugar Plum™ is always a favourite when we have it available.
FOR WELL BEHAVED BORDERS
Named cultivars, like these varieties, won't take over your garden, as they set almost no viable seed, and will stay where they are planted.Buccaneer's purple-blue striped blooms will decorate your garden beds through the year; and the roots are great bank binders for erosion control. Beautiful and useful! Snowball is neat and compact, packing a punch in the borders with big rounded white flowerheads for its size, ideal for mass planting.
If you love mini white agapanthus you can't go past the dwarf Double Diamond which will flower fast and generously in pure ice-white. The flowers are very open for an agapanthus, and have an intriguingly frilly look to the petals.
FOR GREAT VALUE BORDERS
Getty White is a "good doer", neat and compact with pure white blooms and slender habit; and an affordable price point if you are mass planting.Ozbreed's Bingo Blue™ flowers off and on throughout the year in warmer gardens, with surprise bursts of rich colour. This variety will flower while still a very young plant - the photo shows our tubestock flowering in the nursery - , so you won't have to wait long for beautiful blue blooms.
