Buy Agapanthus 'Purple Delight' African lily: It's super in pots

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil (or John Innes no. 3 compost for containers)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: half hardy (will need protection from frost in winter)

    An explosion of rich purple coloured bells top the tall stems of this evergreen African lily, creating a lavish blast of colour from midsummer to early autumn. It will liven up a Mediterranean or cottage garden setting, and is also very stylish in a pot.

  • Garden care: Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser monthly from spring until flowering. Towards the end of September ease back on the watering and feeding of plants in containers to allow the foliage to toughen up. In cold areas, protect the crowns of the plants with a deep, dry mulch to protect them from hard frosts, or grow in a pot so they can be overwintered in an unheated greenhouse. Keep in mind that although they are evergreen in milder climates, the foliage may be killed off by low temperatures. Divide plants that have become too big in spring, but remember you will often get more flowers when the roots are constricted.

Over wintering half hardy plants in pots

You can never quite predict how severe our winter weather will be. In the absence of a crystal ball, it is best in October to make contingency plans to help your plants to survive while there will still be some warmth in the sun and the soil. Hardiness is
