Native to South Africa, award-winning Agapanthus africanus is a lovely African Lily with showy rounded clusters of fragrant, blue, funnel-shaped flowers in early to mid-summer. They rise on stiff, upright stalks atop clumps of beautiful, evergreen, strap-shaped, linear, grass-like leaves. Their foliage mounds remain attractive when the plants are not in bloom.
- Winner of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.
- Thrives in full sun in fertile, moist and well-drained soil. In a hot climate area, Agapanthus will do better in partial shade. Do not allow plants to dry out except when dormant. Bear in mind that most varieties will lean toward the sun, which makes a south facing border the best location.
- Spectacular when planted in great swathes, this Agapanthus fits most garden settings or mixed borders, makes a fantastic accent plant in containers and excellent cut flowers! A great choice for coastal areas as African Lilies cope well with windy and salty air.
- Deer and rabbit resistant, it attracts butterflies, bees and birds.
