Agapanthus (African Lily) Blue, Sky Blue

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.

General Information +

Botanical: Agapanthus africanus

Common: Lily-of-the-Nile

Family: Alliaceae

General Characteristics: Tender perennial. Clump forming. Prefers a moist, well-drained soil of moderate fertility and with a neutral pH. Agapanthus make good background plants or edging along a fence, driveway, or wall. These plants can thrive on conditions of neglect and naturalize readily. They also make excellent tub and container specimens and can be used in cut flower arrangements. Agapanthus will produce the richest and most blooms when tightly packed in tubs or pots. Choose a pot that is too small rather than one that is too large, use many bulbs and plant them tightly. It flowers more heavily as it becomes rootbound. Keep well watered during the growing season and cut back on the water in fall. Though agapanthus is tolerant of a large range of conditions, they do best with low nitrogen with high phosperous fertilizer applied several times during the growing season. Will freeze to the ground around 25 degrees F. Attracts butterflies.
