Agapanthus "Baby Pete' is a compact, dwarf agapanthus, with striped blue flowers, and is bred for Australian conditions. It is a sterile form of agapanthus, which means that it sets no seed, so there is no risk of it being a weed hazard. It is a herbaceous, evergreen, perennial plant, and like all agapanthus, is a good plant for the easy care garden. It has few pests and diseases that trouble it, and once established, can tolerate dry conditions. It is also long flowering through the warmer months. It is a good multi purpose landscaping plant as well as a great container plant for hot sunny positions.
Agapanthus like a sunny position, but can also do well in semi shaded areas, though flowering may be reduced with more shade. They need very little attention, apart from removal of the dried flower heads. An application of a good general purpose fertiliser in spring is beneficial.
