SpecificationsAgapanthus orientalis 'Blue' produces an attractive display of blue to purple flowers from a terminal cluster that sit high on top of the strap like foliage. This species is commonly known as the Lilly of the Nile, with it originally discovered in South Africa. This plant is suited for an abundance of uses; some include containers, mass plantings, edging for paths or driveways. Agapanthus orientalis Blue is easy to grow in most soil types that are well draining, with exposure to full sun or partial shade. Agapanthus orientalis Blue has low water requirements and has proven to be quite drought tolerant, only needing watering during hotter periods. A slow release fertiliser can be used in spring. Pruning is unnecessary; however removal of dead flower stems will encourage further flushes. Agapanthus orientalis Blue can grow to a height of 70cm by 50cm wide. Flowers can reach up to 1m in height.
