Agapanthus africanus is an evergreen species that produces rounded clusters of blue, funnel-shaped flowers atop stiff, upright, leafless, fleshy stalks typically rising 18-24″ tall above a dense mound of basal narrow, strap-shaped, linear, grass-like leaves. Blooms in summer. Foliage mounds are attractive when plants are not in bloom. Showy, ball-shaped flower clusters with green daylily-type foliage. An excellent container plant in cold winter climates and a successful, low maintenance plant in temperate zones.
