  • Care
    Care Information
    Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Once established, may be watered deeply, less frequently. May be semi-evergreen in mildest climates; mulch to protect roots in colder zones. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.Pruning time: late winter or early spring.
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).

  • History & Lore
    History:
    Agapanthus x 'AMBIC001' comes from a breeding program in Johannesburg, South Africa, conducted by DeWet Aloe Farm in Linbro Park. It is the result of a 2nd generation cross between siblings of a previous cross of Agapanthus praecox subsp. orientalis and A. campanulatus. It was selected for its moderate size, vigorous habit and exceptionally long bloom season. It received U.S. Plant Patent #25,519 in May 2015. A new Monrovia exclusive offering for 2017.
