Buy Agapanthus Twister ('Ambic001') (PBR) African lily: A new form with bicoloured flowers

This perennial is semi-evergreen so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but 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)

    The bicoloured flowers of this new African lily really make it stand out from the crowd. They are good-sized trumpets, which open from white buds, with rich blue bases and white flaring petal tips. Forming in generous clusters on top of the upright stems above strappy foliage, these really put on a great show in mid- to late summer.

  • Garden care: Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser monthly from spring until flowering. Towards the end of September ease back onthe watering and feedingof plants in containers to allow the foliage to toughen up. In cold areas, protect the crown of the plant 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. Divide plants in spring. Divide plants that have become too big in spring, but remember you will often get more flowers when the roots are constricted.

The only plant in my warm sheltered garden that did not last the winter, very disappointing as my other agapanthus has done so well

things went wrong when I re-potted it but with a few wise words from Liz at crocus I think I have got it going again and if I still had my greenhouse it would have been no problem....

I've just received my pots of agapanthus twister. As it's October, should I keep them in the pots till the spring or should I plant them out now.

Cheeks

These plants are not fully hardy, so they do need protection from the cold. With that in mind, I would advise against planting it out in the border now, however you could pot it up, and then move it to a sheltered position (an unheated greenhouse or conservatory would be ideal) through the winter months.

Summer stars from warmer climates

When we are all, hopefully, enjoying the hotter more humid days in July and the longer evenings there is a different range of plants that come into their own in our gardens, ones found naturally close to the equator or in the upper reaches of the Souther
