    RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year Winners 2023

    T&M is thrilled to announce that our entry Agapanthus ‘Black Jack’ has been crowned the RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year 2023

    When four of our entries were shortlisted, we hardly dared to hope that one of these would take the winning spot. We are immensely proud to have scooped a hat trick of winners, with Hydrangea ‘Euphoria Pink’ in second, followed by
    Weigela ‘Camouflage’ in third. With some strong contenders in this year’s competition, this stunning achievement has been made all the more special.

    RHS Plant of the Year Winner

    Agapanthus ‘Black Jack’

    Agapanthus Black Jack

    Larger and longer-lasting blooms produced in profusion!

    ‘Black Jack’ offers bigger flowers and more blooms through the season. This amazing Agapanthus produces 10 times as many florets per flowerhead for a flowering season twice as long as its competitors.

    The “must have” Agapanthus for a striking display

    Easy to grow and heat tolerant, ‘Black Jack’ boasts strong vigor and a striking presence in borders and containers. Large flowerheads are filled with black buds that open to deep black-purple striped blooms – these fade to deep purple and take on a dazzling metallic sheen with age.

    A unique variety from 20 years of breeding

    From Wet Plant Breeders, South Africa, set out to produce disease resistant, vigorous, heat-tolerant and multi-flowering cultivars and a black cultivar was always high on the wish list. 17 years into the program, they finally got “the one”! ‘Black Jack’ is a unique Agapanthus that’s the result of years of dedicated hybridised breeding.
