Agapanthus 'Aquamarine'

Lily of the Nile


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist

A UK selection of this smaller, deciduous Agapanthus shared with us by plantsman Jim Fox.  Short foliage is appropriate for the 20"-24" tall flower stems holding baseball-sized heads of deep dark blue flowers that are right on the edge of having some purple influence.  The size works well in containers - just don't leave out over winter to freeze - and would be excellent near the front of garden beds paired with other sun-lovers like Blood Grass, Imperata cylindrica 'Rubra' or the groundcover Cotula 'Tiffindell Gold'.  We mulch our Agapanthus prior to arctic blasts and this selection might be good to zone 7a with enough mulch and if the freezes are not prolonged.
