African Lily or Agapanthus is a neat plant in your garden – a plant for many uses. It is recognized by its evergreen, thin, grassy leaves, that waves over the edges of the pot and its long stems with clump-forming flowers on the top. The flowers come in blue and white and will look wonderful in single arrangements or in groups together with other summer flowers.
Lots of sun and warmth
The plant originates from Africa and is, therefore, a real sun worshipper. It will thrive best on a terrace that faces south or west or on a balcony and it endures a dry-out. You can easily go on a vacation for a week or even two and when you come home you may still find flowers on your African Lily – it might also have grown higher and plumper during your holiday.
For garden pots and vases
Besides its elegant look in the pots and beds in the garden, African Lily can also be used in bouquets. The plant will be very durable in both cases.
African Lily is multi-annual but does not tolerate frost. If you store the plant in a protected place, you can enjoy your lily over and over again. (Floradania)
