Originally from Africa, the wonderfully striated, cerulean blue of Agapanthus Charlotte’s flowers has become a familiar sight in cottage gardens or containers. Creating a mound of strap-like leaves in a sunny border, the flowers add striking colour to the garden from summer onwards and make wonderful cut flowers for arrangements.


Agapanthus may take a couple of years to flower after planting, and because they like root restriction, they do well in a pot. Easy to grow, pest and disease free, they like a sunny, sheltered spot and should be divided every four years or so.
