Northern Star African Lily
Likely the hardiest of any Agapanthus selection, Northern Star venturing all the way to USDA Zone 6! Very impressive for this beauty from South Africa that sports deep blue flowers above the strappy green foliage. Flowers at a young age from midsummer well into the fall. A great way to add a splash of color to the garden at a time of year where they often fade for us in our dry summers. Drought tolerant but also will take a good bit of summer water.
