A lovely alternative to the common Agapanthus, ‘Tinkerbell’ bears variegated white and green leaves on a petite plant that bears pale blue flowers on 2 foot tall stalks. The flowers resemble fireworks – a sphere of beautiful funnel-shaped blooms. Long strap-like green and white leaves form a handsome architectural mound. This evergreen is excellent in borders or can serve well as an accent in the landscape. It craves sun to part shade and will eventually reach 18-24″ tall & wide. Hardy to 10°F, it is native to South Africa. Agapanthus africanus resists drought but does best with regular water and well-drained soil. It tolerates seacoast conditions well and is an excellent container plant. Bees, butterflies, and birds find the flowers irresistible.
