Indigo-blue orbs explode like starbursts atop straight stems. Flowers launch skyward from a mound of sword-like foliage blades. Prolific flowering rivals its taller cousins in size and number but shorter stature allows for placement near the front of the border. Hardy to Zone 6! Agapanthus resemble Allium with giant clusters of star-shaped flowers but typically appear later in the summer with more numerous flower stalks per plant. Agapanthus Little Galaxy is NOT evergreen and will die back to the ground during winter months.

Agapanthus General Information

Agapanthus are beautiful garden focal points and also stunning when planted in mass in borders. They grow in upright clumps of arching strap-like foliage. A favorite of hummingbirds and butterflies. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Agapanthus Plant Care

This variety is hardy to zone 6 but benefits from winter mulch protection during cold months. Prefers average to consistent water. Well-drained soil. Feed with a balanced fertilizer during the growing season. In their natural habitats, Agapanthus grow on sides of mountains where their roots are often root bound. A densely-packed root system often produces better flower production. Divide clumps every 4-5 years in early spring.
