Agapanthus originally come from South Africa but they have become a beloved staple of the cottage garden, filling a sunny border with vibrant colour or bursting joyfully out of terracotta tubs (they are curious in liking to be quite tightly packed in). A. Poppin' Purple is a new variety with a particularly lovely, warm purple colour.
This variety is compact, creating a mound of strap-like leaves in a sunny border, the flowers adding a striking colour from summer onwards and, if you have the heart to cut them down, presenting dramatic cut flowers for indoor arrangements.
