Agapanthus ‘Guilfoyle’ is a magnificent evergreen perennial with huge heads of waxy, midnight blue flowers that last up to 8 weeks. The flower heads are a whopping 30cm across. Not only are the blooms big, and beautiful, they are also prolific, with established plants producing over ten in a season, how good is that?
The evergreen leaves are a slightly lighter shade than standard Agapanthus which is a nice change.
Agapanthus ‘Guilfoyle’ grows magnificently in our paddock, and nearly all who visited could see it, even from a distance and asked after it. The statuesque flowers shone through the height of the summer heat, and the colour was just amazing. It is our hands down favourite Agapanthus of the moment.
Tough, hardy and drought tolerant too! Agapanthus are easy care plants that provide months of flowering with very little effort. The gorgeous, strappy, evergreen foliage is the perfect compliment to the tall blooms.
Agapanthus look great as part of a border, used as edging or in clumps.
Agapanthus can be woven through beds, planted along drives or fences, put in pots or somewhere just for picking - they are hard to beat!
William Robert Guilfoyle designed many of Victorias gardens, including the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne.
