Agapanthus ‘Back in Black’
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

Eye-catching contrast, darkly colored late season blooms and a shorter steadfast stature are the attributes of this prized 2005 introduction by Dutch plantsman Piet Zonneveld. Umbrella-shaped, deep bluish purple flowers crown stout, polished upright green stalks infused with sumptuous jet-black shades as they mature. ‘Back in Black’s seductive midnight hues forge a stunning juxtaposition against the tidy, glistening clump of strapping green leaves. (PP#16,244)
