Agapanthus ‘Storm Cloud’
at Digging Dog

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

It was Barrie Coate’s discerning eye that chose this magnificent darkly hued treasure from a batch of Agapanthus ‘Mood Indigo’ seedlings when he was director of California’s Saratoga Horticultural Foundation. Touted as the richest and darkest flowers of the genus, amazing huge purple-laced blue globes each house up to 100 individual florets on strong, thick greenish black lustrous stalks. The nearly iridescent floral presentation is beguiling to garden visitors and hummingbirds, gathering some 3 or 4 ft. above a large lush evergreen clump of shiny bright green strap-like leaves, which transmutes purple and red shades in winter and provides year-round bold foliar texture.

Size: 4' 0" high x 2' 0"–3' 0" wide. 7/8

Customer Comment:

“I found Digging Dog in a gardening magazine and am so thrilled I did. I went to their website after reading about them and was so impressed I immediately placed an order ( after checking with Garden Watchdog of course !) My plants were delayed 3 weeks due to the hot weather. Each Monday someone from Digging Dog called, explained the situation and explained the delay. What service!! My plants arrived today happy healthy and good size. I could not be happier and will shop Digging Dog much in the future.”
