Product Details

At pool side, lining a path, or in containers the intense blue flowers of this Agapanthus Midknight Blue® add an exotic flair. The nodding, trumpet-shaped flowers of this Lily-of-the-Nile arrive in rounded clusters above fresh green, strappy foliage. A boon to colder climate gardeners, this variety is more hardy than some and will winter over outdoors in Zone 6. In colder regions, plants may be stored indoors. 'Monmid'

This showy South African genus has 10 species that are widely grown for their exotic blue or white flowers, which show from June to August. The plants are of easy culture in full sun or partial shade and rich, well-drained soil, and their graceful, expansive habit and long period of bloom make them an ideal choice for planters in northern climates.

We ship substantial plants, but they will not always bloom the first year for you (sometimes it happens here before delivery). This is not a cause for concern, as the more tender varieties are easily overwintered in a cool room free from direct sun and will certainly win their way into your long-term garden plans. Incidentally, Agapanthus make a glorious addition to the garden in warmer areas and are increasingly popular for this use.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Latin Name Pronunciation: ag-uh-pan'thus 

Grow Agapanthus in full sun or partial shade (partial shade is recommended in warm inland areas of the West) and rich, well-drained soil. Most plants are tender and should be grown in containers to bring indoors for the winter (except for 'Midknight Blue' which is hardy in Zones 6–10). Plants in containers bloom best when they are pot-bound and when given fertilizer that is low in nitrogen and high in phosphorus. Before the first hard frost in autumn, bring indoors and set in an east or north window in a cool room. Keep on the dry side (but not so dry that the foliage withers) and withhold fertilizer in winter.
