Storm Cloud Lily Of The Nile
Tropical blooms in the deepest blue!
Dark Blue Agapanthus (Agapanthus africanus ‘Storm Cloud’) is a visual treat in the garden. The strappy leaves bust out of the ground like exuberant fountains. They shoot up long, thick, straight stems that are topped with an explosion of rich violet-blue flowers. (And when we say ‘explosion’ we mean it. The individual flowers are trumpet-shaped, but each cluster hold dozens of them in an umbel that looks like a firework frozen in mid-air.)
Native to South Africa, these beauties are also known as Lily-of-the-Nile. (We know, the Nile is North Africa, not South Africa, but hey – we’re just the messenger!) They naturally are adapted to spend months with very little water on the African veldts, so you know that they will perform remarkably well in your xeric or water-wise garden.
In mild winter areas there is a good chance that perennial Dark Blue Agapanthus will reward you with flowers almost year-round!
Use this lovely plant in pots as a striking specimen. Try them mixed in large groups in beds or lining a driveway. They look great massed together behind a boxwood hedge where the flower heads peek over and sway in the breeze.
These are super easy-care plants that will reward you with years of great looks for very little work on your part. Order yours today!
