Agapanthus 'Blue Yonder' Description

Another fantastic agapanthus for cold climates! Most people associate lily of the nile (Agapanthus sp.) with warm climates, but 'Blue Yonder' is a special selection that's a perennial even in USDA zone 6. Enjoy clusters of bright purple-blue blooms all summer long, hovering above a mound of neat, strappy leaves. They are outstanding as a cut flower and in the garden, and you'll have plenty to enjoy, thanks to its super long bloom time. 'Blue Yonder' is not evergreen in zones 6 and 7 - it will disappear over winter - but will re-emerge in spring, ready to provide you another season of fabulous blue blooms.

Special features: Unique, sun-loving, deer resistant, rabbit resistant, cut flower

Soil:Any well-drained soil will do.
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day)
Water: Average moisture; tolerates drought once established. Do not overwater.
Spacing: 2-3 feet
Fertilizing: Not required. If more rapid growth is desired, apply a rose fertilizer in early spring.
Winterizing: 'Galaxy Blue' will go dormant over winter, unlike agapanthus in warm climates. This is normal and not a cause for concern. We do recommend a good 2-3" layer of mulch over the plant for winter, especially in zone 6.
Maintenance & pruning: Little needed. Cut flowers as desired for arrangements. If any dried portions of the plant remain in early spring, remove them before new growth begins.
