Agapanthus is a medium sized clumping lily that is native to Africa. They have wide strap leaves and produce an 8 to 10 inch ball shaped cluster of lavender flowers on a tall spike known as an umbel that stand  tall above the plant. 

Generally the bloom cycle begins in early summer and lasts for several weeks.

This lily is an excellent plant for filler in mixed beds or as a border, or accent.

Agapanthus is salt tolerant and quite drought tolerant once well established.

The bloom is long lasting and good for cut flowers, and is well suited for permanent potted culture.

Agapanthus is evergreen in Zone 9-10 and will generally resprout from the rhizomes in Zones 7 & 8, but should not be set out until the danger of severe frost and freeze has passed in the colder Zones.

Agapanthus is reproduced by seed, divisions and tissue culture. .

All parts of the Agapanthus are considered toxic.
