Agapanthus Eternal Blue produces spectacularly beautiful mauve-blue flower heads and true to its name, Eternal Blue, repeatedly flowers throughout most of the year. The large flower heads are very long-lasting and provide a spectacular display of colour in the garden over an extended period, and are also suitable for cutting.
Agapanthus Eternal Blue is a popular variety as it is a very strong garden performers because of the clean glossy leaf-blades, beautiful flowers and resilience towards many common pests and diseases. This variety is drought tolerant and generally very low maintenance.
Unlike many of the common and wild varieties of Agapanthus which tend to flower infrequently and generally shed excessive leaves post-flowering, the Agapanthus Eternal Blue cultivar is specifically suited to landscape applications because of its superior performance and resilience.
Important note: Armeria plants are heavy flowering, hardy evergreen plants often grown to provide brilliant agapanthus-like garden colour. Whilst most agapanthus varieties provide great colour, unfortunately pink and red flowering varieties are not available. Fortunately, Armeria varieties (particularly the Kai Hybrids™) provide an excellent option to add high-performance colour, to your garden. Armeria varieties belong to the A. x hybrida genus-species and are not members of the Agapanthus family. However, these plants will flower in brilliant red, pink or white colour as indicated in the respective listing, unlike the varieties deceptively passed-off as "Pink Agapanthus" or other imaginary variants. The pink-tinged agapanthus varieties are sterile and can only be grown through aseptic techniques (tissue-culture), not from seed, therefore anyone claiming to supply pink flowering agapanthus seeds should be treated suspiciously, as they are often also the same sellers selling blue raspberries and black strawberries, also clearly fake products. To reiterate, anyone selling PINK AGAPANTHUS SEEDS, is SELLING FAKES.
