Quick Overview:

‘Headbourne Hybrids’ features 3-4″ diameter clusters of bright blue, trumpet-shaped blooms on 3′ tall flowering stalks from late summer into early fall. An excellent cut flower. When not in flower, the clumps of strap-like foliage retain their deep green color and will reach up to 1′ tall with a 2′ spread.  ‘Headbourne Hybrids’ offers improved hardiness compared to other Agapanthus hybrids.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Gardens Plant Finder)

Description

Lily-of-the-Nile is native to South Africa (not the Nile River as the misleading common name suggests). It produces rounded clusters (umbels) of funnel-shaped flowers atop stiff, upright, leafless, fleshy stalks (scapes) rising above a dense mound of basal narrow, strap-shaped, linear, grass-like leaves. Blooms in summer. Hybrids come in a variety of colors (dark purples to blues to whites) and in sizes ranging from dwarf plants (18″ tall) to large cultivars (to 4′ tall). Leaves may be evergreen or deciduous. Leaves of some cultivars are variegated. Foliage mounds are generally attractive when plants are not in bloom.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Gardens Plant Finder)
