Agapanthus Headbourne Hybrids makes up a collection of flower colours which are raised from seed, for this reason it is a pot luck when buying them unless they are in flower. With that said, the flower colour of our hybrids is restricted to a range of blues and pale blues. 
 
The original Headbourne Hybrids were raised from seeds collected from the Kirstenbosh Botanic Gardens in Cape Town. These seeds were acquired by the Hon. Lewis Palmer and raised at his garden in Worthy, Hampshire in the 1940s. Around 300 seedlings were raised and they were all hybrids, from these hybrids a range of Agapanthus were selected and named. 
 
The species of this range of hybrids is closest to Agapanthus campanulatus, this is what gives the range its hardiness and they prove to be very tough in most areas of the UK, a winter mulch will help them to thrive. Unlike other species these are deciduous Agapanthus so do not be alarmed if the foliage disappear in winter!
