Twister Lily of the Nile
The first bicolor agapanthus!
African Lily sounds so exotic. It calls to mind lush jungles and hidden flowers that are rare and enchanting. The reality is that African Lily is one of the easiest and most hardy plants you can grow in zone 7-11. So hardy, in fact, that in places where these beauties thrive they are used in freeway dividers and as foundation plantings. This doesn’t distract from their beauty. It makes the even more attractive for their easy care.
Typically seen is shades of lavender or white, the new Twister African Lily (Agapanthus africanus ‘Twister’) turns these stalwarts on their head with a stunning new look. This is the first bicolor agapanthus! The individual trumpet-shaped flowers are true-blue at their base fading to white at their tips.
Each 8” flower-head is made up of dozens of the individual flowers in the form of a ball. These 8” umbels are held three and four feet high over the thick, daylily-like leaves. A mass planting of Twister is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
Plant them in groups, as a border or in a pot. They are beautiful in almost any situation. They make striking cut flowers too!
