Agapanthus x ‘Elaine’

Agapanthus Elaine

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 x ‘Elaine’ is an Archie Armate introduction with dark violet/blue flowers and a 4 to 4.5 foot flower stalk. This is a cross, possibly between A. africanus and A. praecox ssp. orientalis. Plant height is 24 to 30 inches with an upright leaf habit and broad robust foliage. A very vigorous grower.
