Description

Simmer down those hot summer borders with an injection of icy-cool African Lilies, Agapanthus 'Twister'. Bursting into bloom in the height of summer, a generous swathe or potful of these tranquil treasures provides the perfect lift in the garden on a hot day. Large, rounded flower heads are formed of glistening white flowers, the 'twist' being the refreshing gradient of ocean blue which flutes down the base of every flower.

Agapanthus love a hot sunny spot and don’t mind being hemmed into a tight spot. If you have a narrow border running along a south-facing wall, large patio containers to fill or a front-garden flower bed, fill it with tall, upright and impressive Agapanthus 'Twister' for an effortlessly beautiful summer display. Not only is this chic variety a gem in the garden, but it makes a fabulous bi-coloured cut flower too. With a generous stem length and long-lasting blooms, they’re fantastic for showing off in a contemporary glass vase.

Useful information

    • Soak the Agapanthus 'Twister' roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting

    • Plant your "Bi-coloured African lily" bare roots into temporary pots with a multipurpose compost in spring and grow-on in a sheltered spot outdoors

    • Choose a pot which comfortably fits the bare roots. Some have a noticeable crown which should be just below the soil surface with any top growth exposed. Some varieties are a length of root which should be planted lengthways and shallowly (1-2cm deep).

    • Plant out into borders or permanent containers in late spring or early summer once in full growth. Choose a position in sun or shade depending on the variety.
