Agapanthus 'Tinkerbell' is an attractive and bullet proof plant, with light green and white striped leaves topped with pale blue flowers in summer. It is a very low maintenance plant, rarely troubled by pests or disease, and good for poor soil, drought, and coastal positions. Grows from an underground rhizome, and if the leaves are burnt by hard frost, the foliage can be cut back hard to allow the plant to resprout with fresh growth. Good for container growing and for massed planting and edgings. Best in full sun to light shade.
