The Pitchoune range of agapanthus has been grown to have a much more compact habit than most others, but still retaining the large flower clusters and sturdy stems of their taller cousins.
Strap-like bright evergreen leaves form in low clumps and give rise to gorgeous, exotic looking sky blue flowers in June and July, and the naturally compact nature of ‘Scarery Blue’ make it the perfect plant for growing in containers, where it’ll look fantastic on a patio or balcony and it’s also quite at home toward the front of a border or in a rockery.
Like all agapanthus, Pitchoune varieties love rich, well drained soil in full sun or partial shade, and they tolerate drought well. Although hardy to -5°C, some protection will be needed during the coldest winters. Provide a thick mulch in autumn to protect the plants again the hardest frosts, or bring container grown plants under cover.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for planting, growing to a height of 30cm (1ft) and spread of 50cm (1½ft).
