Description

Some might argue that it's impossible not to get a little pep in your step walking past a bed of blooming Neverland™ Agapanthus from the Southern Living Plant Collection. This beauty produces clusters of gorgeous lilac blue buds that soon blossom into stunning sky blue blooms, each with six rounded petals. An inner line runs through the center of each petal and fades to a blueish white at the edge.

This selection has a longer bloom period than many other Agapanthus varieties. Expect it to start blooming in mid-Spring and continue reblooming through Summer.

But wait, there's more! The Neverland Agapanthus is a variegated beauty. It produces thick straps of true green foliage edged with golden hues. This evergreen foliage provides fantastic color contrast and texture, even when the plant isn't in bloom.

This selection grows in a naturally compact, clumping habit. So it won't spread through your garden like wildfire. However, make sure to divide the clumps every few years to promote the overall health of the plants in the cluster. Afterward, the extra plants can either be replanted or gifted to someone that you think could use a little piece of Neverland.

Use it as an accent, border, or mass planting. Alternatively, the Neverland Agapanthus is ideal for container plantings.

Hummingbirds and butterflies love Agapanthus for their tubular blooms.

The Neverland Agapanthus is heat tolerant, therefore, it feels right at home in Southern Gardens. Additionally, it's drought-tolerant and water-wise once established.

Like the Neverland, but have too much sun? Check out the Queen Mum Agapanthus, Little Blue Fountain Agapanthus, or Ever Amethyst Agapanthus.

Neverland Agapanthus Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 8-11, down to 10°F.

Plant in Partial Sun for best results.

Water 3-4 times per week during the first growing season to encourage root growth. During the second growing season, provide supplementary water as needed.

The Neverland Agapanthus is tolerant of most soil types. However, rich soil keeps your perennial thriving year after year. Apply 3-4 inches of compost around your plant yearly (unless you have high clay soil).

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

Neverland Agapanthus Spacing Recommendations
