Agapanthus is often called, 'lily of the Nile", a plant that is native to South Africa throughout the Nile River that reaches up to Egypt. Ty Ty Nursery has grown these exquisite rhizomes since the 1980's successfully in Zone 8, however, most botanists only recommend their cold hardiness to grow in Zone 9 and 10. The color of agapanthus ranges from purple, blue and white, and the rhizomes are multiplied by dividing the clumps.
Having originated from the Nile river, Agapanthus plants grow prolifically near very moist areas and are also exceptionally tolerant to salt water.
Agapanthus Bulbs bloom in either blue, purple, or white, depending on the variety you choose. Agapanthus flowers differ greatly in stem length and cold hardiness, giving you maximum control over your garden's appearance.
