Quick Overview:

One of the very best of the white variegated Agapanthus. This has superb clean white variegation which coupled with the abundant blue flowers in mid to late summer is frankly dazzling. A dwarf selection that lends itself well to containers – just don’t let the pots freeze in winter!

 

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)
