Agapanthus 'Northern Star' (Large Plant)

African Blue Lily

Hardy Perennial

A truly exquisite variety! Agapanthus 'Northern Star' is particularly free flowering, forming masses of rounded flower heads throughout the summer months. Each deep blue flower bears a purple stripe which matches the dark purple flush to the base of the semi-evergreen, strap-like foliage. This tall African Blue Lily is the perfect choice for the middle of herbaceous borders. Plant it in generous clumps where its blooms will rise on sturdy stems above other hardy perennials. If you can spare a few then Agapanthus flowers are also superb for cutting. Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Grow Agapanthus plants in rich fertile, well drained soil, in a sunny position. When growing Agapanthus 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.
