Flowering earlier than most varieties, Agapanthus 'Ever Sapphire' is a dwarf, semi-evergreen African Lily boasting loose clusters of deep blue flowers over a long season. Starting flowering in late spring, it reblooms throughout the summer for a long-lasting display. The ravishing blossoms sit atop slender stalks that arise from a lush clump of strap-shaped, fresh green leaves. This compact Agapanthus is very suitable for perennial borders or container planting on the balcony, terrace or patio. May remain evergreen in milder winter climates.
- Easy to grow, pest and disease free, this African Lily grows from fleshly-rooted rhizomes up to 1-2 ft. tall and wide (30-60 cm).
- 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.
