Drooping Agapanthus has very tall slender stems with unusual dark blue drooping flowers in summer. With deciduous foliage, it is dormant in winter, making it easy to tidy. It can be added to wild areas or meadows that are managed by annual cutting. It is native to open grasslands, forest margins and mountainous, rocky areas of Mozambique, Eswatini, and South Africa.
Although it is tolerant of heat and drought, it will benefit from some irrigation in summer to prolong the flowering period. The plants form dense clumps after a number of years.
We are a plant nursery in the Algarve specialising in dry mediterranean species. We propagate and grow our own stock in conditions they are likely to endure when they are planted out.
We grow plants that are adapted to the dry land conditions in Portugal and southern Spain, both mediterranean perennials and succulents.
We choose plants that require very little water and maintenance. We produce a range of dry land plants that are typical of the worlds mediterranean regions. These are available to order ready for planting in the wetter months of the year. Please order the plants you need and we’ll have them ready at the best time for planting.
To ensure your new plants adapt and establish quickly, we produce them in special anti-spiral root pruning containers and a range of fibre pots (no plastic waste) with our own tried and tested growing media.
Please note we have no retail outlet or garden centre and are not open to the public. For more information you can contact us here.
