Agapanthus 'Loch Hope' 1974 - 'The Crown Estate, Windsor Uk ) AGM (award of garden merit)
Named after a lake in Scotland, this blue, deciduous Agapanthus is one of the only cultivars to be awarded an AGM. It has a flat inflorescence and because of the rather hanging flowers it is not popular for the cut flower trade, but highly praised by the private grower. The leaves are 30 to 50cm long and 3cm wide, the flower stems are round and sturdy, green with purple in color and 60 to more than 100cm high.
