This is said to be one of the largest growing of the agapanthus. The deep blue flowers are in umbles in late July and will make a beautiful bridge from the mid summer to the late summer flowers. From our growing these agapanthus for many years, they will defoliate most winters and will survive down to 5° F.

'Ellamae'...now there's a plant with a good southern name! From California's Archie Amate comes this 1990 introduction, a monstrous and vigorous Lily-of-the-Nile that makes a large clump of green strap-like leaves, topped in midsummer with dark blue-violet umbels of flowers on Jack-and-the-Beanstalk-like 66" tall stems...butterflies not included.
