Agapanthus Headbourne hybrids
Lovely summer-flowering plants, with fresh green upright strap leaves, and spherical heads of flowers. These are usually light blue, but there are darker blue and white varieties. The seed heads can sometimes be dried for winter decoration.
Agapanthus Headbourne hybrids has round heads full of trumpet shaped flowers. The strap-like foliage makes a tidy clump. It is considered as one of the hardiest hybrids, and you can expect this plant to survive at least down to -5 ºC, with occasional freezes colder than this. To be really sure you may want to protect the crown of the plant with a dry mulch, or bring it indoors to ensure successful over wintering. (We have never done this in eastern Scotland, and have had plants for many years.) This is a campanulatus form, named after the garden at Headbourne Worthy near Winchester.
