Agapanthus 'Baby Pete'

full sun
height 20cm
spread 40cm

'Baby Pete' is one of Australia's superior dwarf forms of Agapanthus. Famed for its compact nature and hardy performance, 'Baby Pete' is the perfect choice for low borders and edging. Throughout the warmer months, it puts on a bright show of bold blue flowers. If you are looking for the ideal low growing plant to row down the side of a path or driveway, then this is it!

In full flower 'Baby Pete' extends to a maximum height of only 40-45cm. With a foliage height of only 20cm this is an excellent choice for small gardens and for growing along the front of garden beds. 'Baby Pete' has not known to set seed. After years of trialling across the globe, no viable seed has been observed. This has historically been an issue with Agapanthus, with many varieties causing environmental issues when plants escape into native bushland.

Due to these superior characteristics, Agapanthus 'Baby Pete' has established itself as one of the most popular Agapanthus in Australia for both commercial landscapers and the home gardener.

Once established, quite dry tolerant requiring only occasional deep watering during extended periods of heat. Easy to grow in most soil types which are well draining. Apply a slow release fertiliser in spring. No pruning generally required although removing spent flowering stems will encourage further flushes. CAUTION - Harmful if eaten/skin & eye irritant.

  • Low maintenance and dry tolerant variety
  • Excellent for mass planting as a ground cover
  • Great edging plant against paths, driveways and other hard surfaces
  • Brilliant bright container display in hot sunny patios and courtyard locations
  • Best suits a dry or Mediterranean style garden or sunny herbaceous border
