Buy Agapanthus 'Windsor Grey' African lily: Steely-coloured summer blooms

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: frost hardy (may need some protection in winter)

    Tolerant of drought once established, this decorative perennial produces large heads of pale, grey-blue flowers from mid-to-late summer. Agapanthus make fine specimens in a pot, where their architectural silhouette can best be appreciated - or dot them through the summer border.

  • 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 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 that have become too big in spring, but remember you will often get more flowers when the roots are constricted.

How long will it take for these to grow to maximum size? Love them, but a 9cm pot may take some time to grow! Thanks


Hello, The plants we sell in 9cm pots will be around 1 - 2 years old, but many of them will produce a flower or two in their first year after planting (although this is not something we can guarantee). As for their growth rate, this is largely dependent on their growing conditions, but I would say that you should have a good-sized clump in 3-5 years.



Mediterranean gardens can take on various guises from the rustic and rambling to the formal elegance of an Italian courtyard. However, they all have key features in common, including the use of exotic, sometimes tender, drought-tolerant plants in pots and
