Agapanthus africanus ‘Improved Peter Pan’ Peter Pan Dwarf Lily of the Nile


Agapanthus africanus is native to Southern Africa. It is grown for the dark, glossy, strap-shaped leaves that arch gracefully. Flowers are borne on long erect stems 3 feet or taller. Agapanthus make good background plants or edging along a fence, driveway, or wall. These plants can thrive on conditions of neglect and naturalize readily. They also make excellent tub and container specimens and can be used in cut flower arrangements. In cold winter areas they can be brought indoors for the winter. Agapanthus africanus ‘Improved Peter Pan’ is a dwarf variety much like the traditional ‘Peter Pan’. The difference is this selection is more vigorous and will have more blooms. We produce this variety via tissue culture to endure uniformity and vigor. This Lily of the Nile has light blue flowers with 1 to 1.5 foot flower stalk. Plant height is 8 to 12 inches tall. Foliage can remain evergreen in warmer climates.
