A herbaceous perennial with richly coloured blooms which is well suited in most garden flower displays. The Agapanthus ‘Royal velvet’, more commonly known as African Lily, is a beautiful variety with long, strap-like, dark green foliage that clumps beneath tall stems which carry clusters of deep purple flowers in Summer with even deeper purple, near black, stripes along each petal. A very eye-catching display that can be planted in any position as part of a shrub bed thanks to its stalks.

Plant in moist, humus-rich, well-drained soils and keep in full sun. Be sure to water well in the Summer months and keep in a sheltered position during the Winter to avoid harsh winds. Mulching is highly recommended in the Winter to protect from frosts. Avoid waterlogging in the Winter.
