Blue Lily of the Nile

Agapanthus africanus

Blue Lily of the Nile is a tender mounding evergreen perennial with narrow grass-like foliage.  The attractive, deep blue flower clusters bloom on above the leaves in late spring into summer.  Occasionally reblooms, if spent flower stems are promptly removed.  Flowers best when pot-bound and consistently moist. Drought tolerant once established.
