LoreAn amazing Agapanthus! One five-year-old plant can produce as many as 100 flower clusters from spring into summer, each bright blue bloom measuring 4 inches across. Once established, blooms 2 to 3 weeks later than other dwarfs. This vigorous and easy-to-grow sport of Snowstorm Lily of the Nile was selected for its uniform, compact growth and prolific, extended flowering habit. A colorful landscape plant that will thrive in difficult and warm climatic conditions, given full sun exposure.
Average Size at MaturityQuickly reaches 12 in. tall, 20 in. wide; blooms reach 30 in. tall.
Bloom TimeMid-Spring to Summer
Design IdeasA reliable lush foliage plant for massing over large areas with bright green foliage. Uniform growth makes it suited for formal edging along walks, lawns and driveways. Creates a more naturalistic edge when used along flagstones. Ideal source of blue for middle of the border. Cloak bare legs under tropical looking plants such as palms. Rounded form is attractive as a single, in containers, or as irregular groups.
