Bold, blue, and beautiful, the round clusters of Blue Agapanthus blossoms strike both colorful and architectural notes in the garden. The dense umbellate flower clusters bloom in mid-summer, held on long stems that rise from an ever-growing clump of strong, strappy foliage. Enjoy watching pollinators and hummingbirds visit these sky-blue blooms, followed by decorative seed heads form once the individual blooms have faded. Blue Agapanthus prefers full sun but loves a bit of shelter from hot afternoon rays. Well-draining soils a must.

(28-32” tall x 24”wide) Beloved by gardeners in warm climates for its ability to create structure while providing gorgeous blue blossoms over an extended period, Blue Agapanthus will create a strong garden feature. It will fully mature in 2-3 years. With glossy, strappy leaves and tall clusters of flowers forming loose globes, Blue Agapanthus is a bit like a large clumping allium. Plant Blue Agapanthus in well-drained sunny soils that are enriched with organic material, planting the crown of the plant below the soil line. A sunny site with some shelter from hot afternoon rays will help blossoms last longer, but even when flowers have faded, the seed heads will dry attractively above the still healthy foliage. As it is native to regions where winters are dry, well-drained soils essential in areas where Blue Agapanthus is zone marginal. To ensure hardiness where winters are wet, protect the plant by covering them, or plant in containers that can be moved indoors. Blue Agapanthus is just as beloved by pollinators and hummingbirds as it is by gardeners worldwide.
