Agapanthus General Information

Agapanthus are beautiful garden focal points and also stunning when planted in mass in borders. They grow in upright clumps of arching strap-like foliage. A favorite of hummingbirds and butterflies. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Agapanthus Plant Care

Well-drained soil. Feed with a balanced fertilizer during the growing season. In their natural habitats, Agapanthus grow on sides of mountains where their roots are often root bound. A densely-packed root system often produces better flower production. Divide clumps every 4-5 years in early spring.
