Description

Agapanthus Charlotte: African Lily / Lily of the Nile Plants

Charlotte is a bit more compact than the average Agapanthus, perfect for pots and has a particularly long flowering season. The round umbels are composed of blue flowers with a violet stripe along each petal. The strap-shaped evergreen leaves are mid-green and glossy. It is clump-forming to about 60cm high by 40cm wide.

Agapanthus are only delivered pot-grown, year round.

Growing 'Charlotte' Agapanthus

Agapanthus need full sun to perform properly and are not suitable for planting outside in colder areas: here they should be grown in a pot and brought under shelter in winter. Otherwise, if an extensive period of frosts or snow is forecast, it is best to cover them

Suitable for any well-drained soil, they like sharply drained, sandy soil in particular, but they will not flower well if they dry out during the growing season.

Cut out the flowering stems when they fade, but many people prefer to leave some of them for a while to provide autumn interest, and remove them after winter cold blackens them.

In Your Garden Design

Being somewhat shorter than other Agapathus, 'Charlotte' works well at the front of the border, where its pretty azure petals with a stripe of darker blue will create a delightful haze of flowers. Tone with other late-flowering blues and purples, such as perovskias, asters and salvia; work with white cosmos and roses; or pair with other exotics such as gingers.

Otherwise, grow in a pot, so that you can admire it close up on a terrace. Restricting the roots in the pot will also help promote flowering.
