Noted for its hardiness and vigorous growth, Agapanthus 'Arctic Star' produces large rounded clusters of trumpet-shaped, pure white flowers on sturdy, upright stalks atop a clump of beautiful, semi-evergreen, gray-green, strap-shaped leaves. Brightening up the garden for weeks, this elegant Agapanthus cultivar does not fade as it matures and its foliage mound remains attractive, even when the plant is not in bloom. Remarkably resilient, 'Arctic Star' is one of the hardiest white Agapanthus and can survive temperatures well below freezing. It is also one of the earliest to bloom (end of June or early July).
- Bloom time is variable, depending on the local climate and water availability, but this plant usually blooms from mid to late summer.
- Easy to grow, pest and disease free, this African Lily is quite vigorous and grows up to 24-30 in. high (60-75 cm) from fleshly-rooted rhizomes.
- 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.
