The genus Agaphantus includes perennial plants, originating from South Africa, very easy to cultivate and that produces spectacular blooming throughout summer. The Agaphantus flowers are bell shaped and collected in inflorescences, mostly blue even if there are varieties with white flowers. It is important to know, at the time of purchase, if it is a deciduous or perennial leaf species in order to be aware of the cultivation needs of the plant in order to arrange it in the right way as they are plants that do not like to be handled. The perennial leaf Agaphantus can instead be kept outdoors during the winter, only in the areas in which frosts are infrequent. Until the first shoots have appeared, the pot with the plant should be kept in a sheltered place and watered in moderation. During this period it is appropriate to fertilize every two / three weeks using a liquid fertilizer diluted in the irrigation water.
