Description

Agapanthus 'Fireworks' is a standout perennial in our collection, cherished for its mesmerising bi-coloured flower heads that evoke the splendour of fireworks in full bloom. Each trumpet-shaped blossom begins as a rich purplish-blue bud, gracefully transitioning to a pristine white hue along the petals, creating a stunning visual spectacle. This variety's unique coloration sets it apart, offering an impactful focal point in any garden setting. Beyond its aesthetic qualities, 'Fireworks' boasts numerous benefits that make it a prized addition to a variety of garden styles. Its compact growth habit forms a tidy mound of evergreen foliage, lending structure and texture to garden beds or containers. With a moderate height of around 60cm and a spread of up to 50cm, it offers versatility in placement without overshadowing smaller companions. Our highlight of 'Fireworks' is its extended blooming season, which extends from late Summer to early Autumn, injecting vibrant colour and vitality into the garden during the latter part of the growing season. Gardeners can anticipate a splendid floral display year after year, provided the plant is provided with proper care and protection during Winter months. This Agapanthus variety is not only visually stunning but also resilient, withstanding a range of conditions when planted in a sheltered spot. Its long-lasting charm and exceptional performance make 'Fireworks' a prized selection for gardeners of all levels.

Planting Conditions

Agapanthus should be planted in moist, well drained soil, as they don't like too much water to stick around near their roots. Chalk, clay, sand or loam based soils are best, and they will tolerate any soil pH without troubles. When potted, Agapanthus also produce more flowers, as they can perform better when their roots are confined. It's also important that they're planted in a spot that gets 6 to 8 hours of sunlight a day, as they need this to create their impressive displays.

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 are very low maintenance overall, needing little watering or protection from disease or pests. They will need protection during the Winter if you want them to come back next year, a greenhouse is the best choice to ensure they maintain a temperature where they will survive. When you receive your plant, dig a hole twice the size of the pot and fill in the area around the plant with compost. A 3 inch layer of mulch should also be applied around the base of the plant, then water it to keep it moist until it's established.
