Agapanthus 'Flower of Love'

African Blue Lily

Hardy Perennial

  • The bluest agapanthus blooms
  • Lush evergreen foliage
  • Thrives on neglect!

The perfect African lily for UK gardens! The deep blue florets of Agapanthus 'Flower of Love' are some of the darkest in the genus. Set above lush, strappy evergreen foliage, the exotic blooms make a real statement in sunny borders and patio container displays, returning each summer and getting better every year. Hardier than most other modern introductions, Agapanthus 'Flower of Love' requires little upkeep, performing well on the poorest of soils, and in the confines of a patio pot, where good drainage is provided. There's no need for regular feeding or cutting back, simply apply a balanced feed each spring and cut back spent flower stalks in autumn. Foliage stays green year-round, offering valuable winter ground cover. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Ideal For:
patio, cottage gardens
Flowering Period:
July, August, September

sun or semi shade

Plant in rich fertile, well drained soil, which is in a position of full sun. To grow Agapanthus plants in patio containers use a soil based compost, such as John Innes No.3 .
Feed and water African Lilies regularly throughout the growing season. Leave faded Agapanthus flower stems intact to enjoy their architectural seed heads during autumn. When the first frost blacken the seed heads, cut the stems back to ground level. Protect plants outdoors from severe winter weather by providing a dry mulch of bark chips or straw in late autumn. Container grown plants can be moved to a frost free position over winter. Divide agapanthus clumps in spring when they become over crowded.

  1. Agapanthus 'Flower of Love' African Blue Lily

    By ANDREW LEE 16-09-2016

    Even though box was damaged the potted plant fortunately came through unscathed. Just wish the couriers who deliver plants take more care. Watered the plant and is now temporarily in my kitchen window to be planted up next week. I'm looking forward to the blooms next summer.
