History

An 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.
