Growing 'Poppin' Purple' 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.

You can 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

Agapanthus look wonderful in serried ranks along the base of a wall, or in a large pot, where they make a bold statement. Their elegant tall but slender stems give height in the border without bulk. Grow with other sunlovers such as perovskia and salvias, and mix with other varieties. Also work with Mediterranean-style plants such as astranthia Star of Beauty, campanula lactiflora and eryngium bourgatii. In containers, try bordering with Erigeron karvinskianus and/or convolvulus cneorum and mixing with white agapanthus.
