Product Information

Chelsea Plant of Year 2023

There's nothing better than a large Agapanthus in full flower at the height of summer, creating an eruption of the deepest, darkest purple. The 'Black Jack' is a dramatic perennial which showcases incredible flowerheads, filled with black buds that open to reveal black-purple flowers. Over time, these will fade to deep purple. The black buds are a wonderful contrast to the striped, purple flowers, which develop a metallic sheen over time.

Agapanthus are the perfect plant for an ornate container and with a little care, will last you a lifetime. Even before the 1m flower stems appear, the bright green strap life leaves are a lovely sight and heighten the expectation of the blooms to come from mid-summer. Agapanthus do best when their roots are restricted so don't be tempted to pot into too large a container - just a little wider than the nursery pot they arrive in will be fine.

Place in a sunny spot and enjoy this African native in your garden over summer!

Supplied in a 9cm pot.

Top Tips

You will often get more flowers when the roots are restricted, so this is definitely a plant that does better in a pot - plus it can be easily moved to avoid the worst of the winter weather.

Care Information

Feed with a general-purpose fertiliser monthly from spring until flowering, then, from the end of September reduce watering and feeding to allow the foliage to harden. In colder parts of the UK, cover the crown of the plant with a deep, dry mulch to protect the plants from hard frosts, or grow in a pot so they can be overwintered in an unheated greenhouse.
