Agapanthus 'Peter Pan' Overview

Agapanthus 'Peter Pan' is an dwarf herbaceous, clump forming plant that produces charming pale blue funnel shaped flowers that form a rounded head standing only 40cm tall above narrow, strap shaped leaves. African Lily 'Peter Pan' gives a lovely summer display, looking especially stunning as part of a Mediterranean or mixed planting scheme at the front of borders. In colder areas it will happily grow in small containers that can be moved undercover during the winter months. Like Goldilocks, agapanthus like their growing space to be just so. Contra to popular wisdom, Agapanthus do not like to be overcrowded in their pots; however they also take a while to establish if planted up into too large spaces. As a rule of thumb, pot on every two years using a gritty multipurpose mix.
