Baby Pete Lily of the Nile

Agapanthus praecox ssp. orientalis 'Benfran' P.P. #21,705

This unique compact variety blooms weeks earlier than others! Masses of blue flowers just above clusters of short, wide evergreen foliage. Rarely sets seed pods, resulting in a longer bloom period. Splendid along pathways, or in groupings and mixed containers.

CareFollow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Low water needs, once established. Prune old flower stalks for a neat appearance and to encourage repeat bloom. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring. Information provided by Monrovia.
