Agapanthus

Lily of the Nile

Seducing gardeners and butterflies, Agapanthus hails from South Africa and procures its name from the Greek words agape and anthos meaning ‘love flower’. Well draining, not-too-rich, loamy soils, afternoon shade where it’s hot and protection from cold winter nights ensure a happy specimen that even obliges an occasional dry period once established

Agapanthus ‘Lilliput’ full sun  partial shade

A glossy green fountain of low growing, straplike evergreen foliage offers up loosely arranged round umbels, which unfurl like exploding fireworks, atop sturdy leafless stalks. Violet anthers and deep purple stems augment the cool dark blue, tubular flowers. Well-suited for a container or the front lines of a bed amid silver-leafed plants, small-statured ‘Lilliput’ thrives in well draining, not-too-rich, loamy soils, withstanding some dry periods once established. It appreciates afternoon shade where it’s hot and winter protection from the cold.

Size: 2' 0" high x 18" wide. Zone 7/8.

“Very nice web site.  I am especially pleased to see your large selection of perennial herbs with the extensive narratives.  We are building up a garden...after Katrina destroyed our old home.”
