Summer Skies African Lily
Giant Flower Clusters on Tall Stems
Summer Skies is a hardy perennial with giant flower clusters on tall stems. These make a wonderful container or border plant. The height of the flower head would also make them a perfect addition amid shorter plantings in your perennial bed.
Your Summer Skies is a fabulous, tropical-looking plant that stands above the rest…literally. Its 24-inch bare stems shoot up into the sky well above many other garden plantings. The 8-inch round balls of delicate buds sit strategically atop the stems until they begin to open in mid-summer.
Dozens of 6-petaled, sky blue flowers cluster together on the tall stalks in a breathtaking display of floral majesty. You’ll enjoy this performance of nature in all her splendor throughout the summer months and even into fall. Summer Skies will grow to about 3 feet tall with a 24 inch spread. Its upright habit and medium green foliage create an attractive picture in the landscape even without the amazing flowers.
Your Summer Skies is a variety of African Lily Plant. It was developed for greater hardiness and seems to live up to that expectation. It is easy to care for and cold tolerant. Butterflies love it but deer don’t.
The flowers make an excellent cut flower, so you can even enjoy its brilliance indoors. It’s quite simply a plant with a lot to offer that demands little in return. In fact, Summer Skies seems to prefer a little neglect, blooming best when overcrowded or even root bound.
It’s easy to see why Summer Skies is a great choice for your garden today.
