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.

Blooms July – September.

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

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.

Customer Comment:

“The clematis I ordered was especially impressive--nicely staked, sporting two new shoots.  The roots of all the plants were very well developed and I'm looking forward to enjoying all of them this season and many more to come.”
