Whilst most of my pot grown Agapanthus are still looking reasonably lush one in particular - Agapanthus Twister - the foliage seems to be fading prematurely despite still having a few flowers to open.


The others by comparison have finished flowering yet look like this.  Still very green.


All are treated the exact same.  Fed with half strength tomato feed when foliage is around 4 inces high in springtime and a couple of times during the growing season.  Not set regime really, it kind of goes with the flow in regards to what the weather is doing.

A. Twister was new last year, as you can see expelling the myth that they like to be pot pound to flower.  (I knew that anyway from experience in growing the others I have).  It produced 7 flower stems this year.  However, I have never noticed the foliage fading as early before.  My instinct tells me that it could be because we've had a few chillier nights recently but thought I'd ask your thoughts by way of confirmation. 

Thanks in advance.

    it almost looks like its got too wet or too dry? have you checked the drainage holes in the bottom of the pot as I would bet too wet

    Thank you tree hugger.  I thought there was enough drainage holes perhaps not enough.  I'll investigate and report back.

    You might be right - although there are many, I had to drill them myself, I don't think they are big enough.  I'll need to sort that out.
