Agapanthus 'Midnight Blue' Plants

Mike Titchmarsh suggests 'Midnight Blue' for small landscapes as it only develops to 45cm (18in) high. Its lightweight means that it is ideal for growing in bins on the terrace, as well as in the floor. It generates trumpet-shaped, very black red blossoms in mid- to delayed summer season. Develop in well-drained but wet floor in full sun. A protected position is best. In cooler areas, it may need to be overwintered in the house.
