Perennials for Cutting

Agapanthus 'Ellamae'

Queen of the Nile
An Agapanthus africanus /praecox cross from Archie Armate with dark violet blue trusses on 5-6' stems, above clumps of semi-evergreen foliage. We have not had luck with it wintering over outdoors in zone 6, but have clients on Nantucket who have had it return for years now. Ahh...dreaming of a mild winter climate right now.
