The Ever Twilight Agapanthus (Agapanthus hybrida ‘MDB001’ PP30162) is a new beauty from the Southern Living Plant Collection! It produces large globular clusters of trumpet-shaped white and violet-blue flowers. These blooms to begin much earlier than most other varieties in spring and then continue into summer.
Its foliage is thick and straplike, with a leathery texture. Additionally, these leaves are consistently bright green and attractive. It’s semi-evergreen, so warmer USDA Zones will find it to be evergreen, while colder Zones may see it as a deciduous perennial.
This is a semi-dwarf variety that reaches about 24-30″ H x 16-18″ 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.
Hardy in USDA Zones 8-11, down to 10°F when established. We recommend covering your new plants overnight during hard freezes.
Plant in Part Sun for best results. 3 hours or more is generally recommended for optimal blooming and foliage.
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 Twilight 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.
Space your individual plants about 12-18″ apart for a seamless planting. Plant over 2 feet apart for space between clumps.
