One of the darkest African Lilies, Agapanthus 'Purple Cloud' is a compact perennial with huge umbels, up to 10in. across (25 cm), densely packed with violet-purple, pendulous, trumpet-shaped flowers. Blooming from mid to late summer, the richly colored blossoms rise on stiff, upright stalks atop clumps of beautiful, deciduous, rich green leaves.
- Easy to grow, pest and disease free, this African Lily grows from fleshly-rooted rhizomes up to 3-4 ft. tall (90-120 cm) and 2-3 ft. wide (60-90 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.
