Description

Agapanthus Bridal Bouquet is a white flowering semi-evergreen perennial that forms a mound of foliage beneath tall stems bearing impressive numbers of trumpet-shaped white flowers. It will grow to about 60cm tall and will flower throughout the summer, making it perfect for summer displays in a pot or even planted. Bridal Bouquet specifically is also used frequently in wedding bouquets due to its colour and excessive flowering. Agapanthus don't require much water or care otherwise, making them great for gardeners who either don't have the time to maintain a costly garden or simply don't want to! The sun is truly their best friend in the garden, as it's where they'll grow the best but also where they'll look their best, it's a real treat to have in the garden in July. This plant is also fantastic when potted - as pots constrict an Agapanthus' roots, it actually produces more blooms! Pests and disease also aren't a worry, as Agapanthus are generally free of leaf munchers (save for the odd hungry snail or slug!). Is there anything this perennial can't do?!

Planting Conditions

This plant should be planted in moist, well drained soil, composed of sand, loam, clay or chalk. The pH of the soil is not important for an Agapanthus, but they'll need to be planted in a sheltered spot that has at least 6 hours of sunlight a day. They will grow very well when potted, as when their roots are restricted they will perform better, although they can perform well in a flower bed provided the soil they're planted in doesn't get too waterlogged.

Watering & Feeding

Agapanthus love being a little more on the dry side than most perennials, meaning they won't need watering as often as other plants in the garden. Because of this, they should also be planted in soil that drains well - and this watering can be performed once or twice a week. If you're wondering when they should be watered in their flowering season, check the top inch of soil, as if it's dry then they could do with a water. They should be fertilised with a fertiliser of a 1-2-1 ratio, mainly in Spring and Summer.

General Care

Agapanthus require little maintenance as they need very little water and don't require extensive means to avoid disease and pests. They will need protecting in the Winter where the frost can kill them if they aren't in a greenhouse. When planting, a hole twice the size of the pot should be dug and the plant placed into it, filling in the remaining area in with compost. A 3 inch layer of mulch should then be applied around the base of the plant, and it should then be watered to keep the soil moist while it establishes in its new spot.
