You may often find a blue agapanthus in the garden centres, sometimes a white one and on occasion even a bicolour one. However I think you are unlikely to find such a gorgeous variety as Agapanthus sea breeze, with its stunning combination of colours. Below I describe some of the best features of this delightful variety and why it deserves a place in your garden:-
- A defined bicolour of really sumptuous blue and white
- Sturdy stems.
- As the flowers age they fade to fully white, giving a chameleon effect.
- An excellent clump forming variety with multiple flower stems.
- A hardier variety than many agapanthus that will thrive in a well drained sunny spot.
- It’s height and spread of 60cm (24in) make it ideal for containers as well as borders. It is even said that Agapanthus prefer their roots to be restricted in order to produce a profusion of blooms.
- Perennial, so will produce summer blooms every year for many years to come.
- Makes and excellent cut flower for the vase.
Regular readers will know that I love to recommend plants that are star performers in the garden, and ones that I would definitely find a space to squeeze in to my own garden. Agapanthus Sea Breeze certainly meets these requirements.
