I've ordered Agapanthus 'Pinocchio' and they will come by November. November! Blizzard variety?. I presume they are dwarf 9 inches but not hardy. Some say the spread is 1ft 6. Too much?

On plant Agapanthus



Hi, I presume this is a variety of Agapanthus lilliput, if so it is fully hardy, but if you're not getting it until november, I would plant it, and give it a dry mulch, at least for the first winter until it gets established, the height and spread of these is about 16" so 1 ft 6" sounds about right, Derek.

Hi, should have said, if the ground is frozen or waterlogged, wait until it either defrosts or dries out, is it a bare root p!ant you're getting?, if so, and the conditions above apply, plant up in a pot until conditions improve, Derek.
