Agapanthus ‘Storm Cloud’

Agapanthus

Lily of the Nile

Seducing gardeners and hummingbirds, Agapanthus hails from South Africa and procures its name from the Greek words agape and anthos meaning ‘love flower.’ Well-draining, not-too-rich, loamy soil, afternoon shade where it’s hot and protection from cold winter nights ensure a happy specimen that even obliges an occasional dry period once established.

Agapanthus ‘Storm Cloud’ (P-1790)

<i>Agapanthus</i> ‘Storm Cloud’

It was Barrie Coate’s discerning eye that chose this magnificent deeply hued treasure from a batch of Agapanthus ‘Mood Indigo’ seedlings when he was director of California’s Saratoga Horticultural Foundation. Promoted as the richest and darkest flowers of the genus, amazing, huge purple-laced blue globes each house up to 100 individual florets on strong, lustrous thick greenish black stalks. The nearly iridescent floral presentation roosts some 3 or 4 ft. above a large lush evergreen clump of shiny strap-like bright green leaves, which transmutes purple and red shades in winter and provides bold year-round foliar texture.

Blooms July–September

Size: 4' 0" high x 2' 0" – 3' 0" wide.

Zone 7/8.

PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE PRIOR TO PLACING YOUR ORDER!

Due to the unprecedented influx of orders, phone calls and emails that we have been receiving, our small family run business of not quite a dozen people, is sadly behind at this time. The combination of extremely cold weather in January and February, as well as vendor plant shortages and unanticipated delays, are adding to our difficulty of assigning ship dates in a timely fashion. Please know our team is working diligently to catch up. Orders are currently taking up to 5 weeks to review. To be as fair as possible to our valued customers, we are processing orders in the order they were received. We appreciate your patience and hope that you can accept our heartfelt apology for any inconvenience.
