It was Barrie Coate’s discerning eye that chose this magnificent darkly hued treasure from a batch of Agapanthus ‘Mood Indigo’ seedlings when he was director of California’s Saratoga Horticultural Foundation. Touted as the richest and darkest flowers of the genus, amazing huge purple-laced blue globes each house up to 100 individual florets on strong, thick greenish black lustrous stalks.
The nearly iridescent floral presentation is beguiling to garden visitors and hummingbirds, gathering some 3 or 4 ft. above a large lush evergreen clump of shiny bright green strap-like leaves, which transmutes purple and red shades in winter and provides year-round bold foliar texture.
Size: 4' high x 2'–3' wide. Zone 7/8.P-1790
- "I love this plant because of it's intense blue, which is like nothing else I've ever seen." - Roxy, Digging Dog Nursery.
