Description

The Ever Sapphire™ Agapanthus (Agapanthus hybrid ‘ANDbin’ PP26336) from the Southern Living Plant Collection produces gorgeous globular clusters of trumpet-shaped violet-blue blooms. Expect these flowers to begin appearing in spring and continuing into summer.

This variety is semi-evergreen. Therefore warmer USDA Zones will find it to be evergreen, while colder Zones will see it as a deciduous perennial. Its foliage is thick and straplike, with a leathery texture. Additionally, it’s an attractive bright green hue that goes with just about anything in the landscape or garden.

This is a semi-dwarf variety that reaches about 20-24" H x 12-18" W. It has a naturally clumping habit, so it won’t take over your garden. However, as with many perennials, divide these perennials every 3-4 years to prevent crowding.

Use this as a border plant along a walkway, as an accent in a mixed garden bed, in a container, or as a mass planting.

Ever Sapphire Agapanthus Care

Hardy in USDA Zones 8-11, down to 10°F when established.

Plant in Part Sun for best results.

Water 3-4 times per week during the first growing season. In the second growing season, provide supplementary water in times of extreme heat and drought.

The Ever Sapphire Agapanthus prefers garden soil with good drainage for best results.

Perennials rarely need supplemental fertilizer, however, 3-4 inches of compost around the plant yearly provides nutrients to keep the plant happy and healthy.

How to Plant:

  1. Find a suitable planting location based on the planting specifications listed above
    • Remember to leave a room for their clumps to expand.
  2. Dig a hole roughly three times as wide as the pot that your plants came in.
    • Don’t dig the hole deeper than what will allow for your plant to sit evenly with the ground around it. For slower draining soils, dig a slightly shallower hole so your plant will sit a couple of inches above the soil around it. Mound the soil around the base of the plant.
  3. Mix your native soil with some rich garden soil or compost to encourage new root growth and expansion.
  4. Place the plant in the hole and backfill around it with your dirt mixture.
  5. Water your new planting deeply to settle the soil and hydrate your plant.
    • Now is a good time for a light fertilizer application. If you’re planting in mid to late fall or summer, use a root rocket fertilizer. If you’re planting in spring or early fall, use a slow-release balanced plant fertilizer. We don’t recommend using liquid fertilizer on new plantings.


Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Our plants are adaptable but grow best in the correct USDA Zones. Click here to learn more about your USDA Zone.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.

Spacing Recommendations

Ever Sapphire Agapanthus Spacing Recommendations

Space your individual plants about 12-18″ apart for a seamless planting. Plant over 2 feet apart for space between clumps.
