Agapanthus are used extensively in garden beds and borders. In parks and commercial settings long swathes of them are often seen defining a landscape plan. Sunny positions are best but many plantings are seen as under-story plants where tree roots are competition. Agapanthus are thriving even there. In shade the flowering is nowhere near as good but the plants with their distinctive leaves earn their place.Agapanthus are drought tolerant and can tolerate reasonably cold weather.They will grow in most soil types.In most soil types fertilizing can be used sparingly but naturally some general fertilizer once or twice a year will keep the plants growing to their best potential.
