Details

32-36" tall x 18" wide. Agapanthus inapertus ssp. Pendulus is a stunning wildflower from the summer-rain grasslands of South Africa, this cold hardy Lily-of-the-Nile blooms in mid-summer with three foot tall flower spikes topped with pendulous blue flowers. These Pendulous African Lily plants are vigorous, reliable bloomers with a dozen or more stems per plant. Hummingbirds love the nectar-rich flowers. Deciduous, mulch the plants heavily in late fall to protect the crown from winter cold.

      The color of the flowers are not as strong or as bright as they are in other verities. It is still a nice addition to the garden though.

      Q & A

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
