Lily Of The Nile
Gorgeous blue flowers are tough as nails!
If you live in zone 8-10 you are probably well-versed in Lily-of-the-Nile (Agapanthus africanus). In Southern California and the Coastal South, these beauties bloom year round. They are so easy care and hardy that they are ubiquitous in strip malls, parking lots and municipal buildings. They are so elegant and striking you can find them in landscapes from urban apartment complexes to posh Rodeo Drive and Worth Avenue retailers.
Hardy to the nth degree, this is truly a ‘plant-it-and-forget-it’ flower. It will reward you with an over-abundance of flowers all year round, but especially in the spring and summer. Not to worry, though, if you live anywhere north of zone 8. Agapanthus make great potted plants. You just need to bring them indoors in the coldest months.
The purple-blue flowers are born on long wand-like stems rising above strappy, grass-like leaves. They grow in HUGE round heads like drumsticks. Combine them with just about any shade of daylily for a show to remember. They make an unforgettable border when you plant them as middle ground between boxwood and Iceberg roses.
