Agapanthus 'Rosewarne' is a magnificent variety with huge round heads of sky-blue flowers on tall, sturdy stems in late summer, over a clump of evergreen foliage. The seedheads are decorative up to late autumn. Lovely in a sunny border or container and superb as cut flowers. Attractive to butterflies. A good seaside plant. Height and spread 1m by 50cm.
Plant in spring or summer in moist but well-drained soil in a sunny, sheltered position. Feed monthly with a balanced liquid fertiliser until flowering. Cover with a protective dry mulch in winter.
