Agapanthus orientalis 'Black Pantha'
Agapanthus orientalis 'Black Pantha'
Beautiful globes of blue-black flowers burst from almost black buds and stand elegantly above evergreen strap-like leaves. Perfect for a sunny border or for a patio pot. Although hardier than other varieties, it still requires some winter protection in colder, exposed areas. Agapanthus originate from Southern Africa. Both deciduous and evergreen, they range from fully hardy to half hardy, with the evergreen varieties generally the most tender

They thrive in fertile, well-drained, but moisture-retentive soil in full sun. They are best protected over winter with a dry mulch of sand or straw. A few layers of horticultural fleece can also be used to protect the evergreen varieties. For the best flower displays, feed weekly or fortnightly during the growing season until flowers begin to show colour. Water regularly during the growing season, but only sparingly in winter.
