Dwarf Lily of the Nile
A perfectly mini version of a perfectly wonderful plant!
Dwarf Agapanthus (Agapanthus africanus ‘Peter Pan’) is exactly like the big Lily-of-the-Nile that you love in warm weather landscapes, except it only grows a foot tall!
This sweet little plant has strappy, fountain-like leaves that stay green year round. Several thin flower stalks grow up to 18 inches high from the middle of the leaf clumps and each one holds a cluster sphere of deep, pure blue flowers.
These little guys are excellent in containers and perfect for rock gardens. They are little workhorses and will fit into borders or beds with ease. They make great punctuation points amongst evergreen shrubs (especially clipped boxwoods). They fit into just about any garden style from modern to traditional to beachy to exotic. (You’ve never seen anything quite as beautiful as a line of Dwarf Agapanthus in full bloom against a white picket fence.) These are also one of the most perfect plants ever for planting around a swimming pool. No mess and no pruning!
These are native to South Africa and are adapted to spend months with little water on the African veldts, so they are sure to perform well in your water-wise garden.
These are truly easy-care plants that will give you a big bang for your buck and don’t need a lot of work to keep them looking their best. Order yours today!
