Medium_2016-01-12_18 Mutated White Agapanthus Flowers

We have a number of white Agapanthus plants that were successfully transplanted from a friend a couple of years ago. The flowers on a few of the plants are mutated with bent stems and double headed flowers. Will those few plants always produce mutated flowers?

Answer: Hello Gillian,

My suspicion is that those plants are encountering different conditions to the others you have planted; potentially soil, moisture, light or nutrient related variations. Think about which of these might be contributors in your garden and try to address those. If you have done so and you are getting the same symptoms from the same plants year after year, perhaps your best option will be to replace them. Fertilise with Yates Dynamic Lifter Plus Flower Food for best results. A soil test conducted via your local nursery may uncover any particular nutrient deficiencies needing to be addressed. Your local nursery may also have further specific advice for your plant variety relevant to your local area.

All the very best with it and happy gardening!

Kind regards,

Matt
