Common Name: Queen Anne Agapanthus, African Lily, Lily of the Nile
Availabilty: In Stock
The Queen Anne Agapanthus is an evergreen perennial with large hydrangea-esque globes of small, tubular blue-violet flowers blooming throughout spring and summer. The stunning flowers are attractive to local bird and insect life, especially to butterflies! Tall, strappy, glossy-green foliage, with a gorgeously thick, clumping habit make her the perfect addition to mixed beds. Don't let the Queen Anne's dainty appearance fool you though, she's much tougher than she looks, being tolerant of both dry conditions and the cold (although growth slows in those conditions).
This garden favourite is only about knee height, average growth is around the 500 - 800 mm mark; rendering her ideal for mixed beds, contrast planting, borders, mass planting, under-planting or for use as an accent plant. Plant en masse to aid in erosion control. Low maintenance, with just a recommendation for pruning the dead heads after flowering is over to encourage new growth. You won't regret this little beauty joining your garden family!
Hardy; Tolerant of frost, coastal conditions and drought. Most soils. Full sun to part shade. Attractive to local bird and insect life.
