Agapanthus africanus 'Peter Pan' Lily of the Nile

Available Spring 2024


Agapanthus africanus 'Peter Pan' is a dwarf perennial that produces globes of light blue, funnel-shaped blooms on upright stalks. Agapanthus 'Peter Pan' is short and sweet. Also known as Lily of the Nile, these bulbous plants have long, narrow strap-shaped leaves and clusters of tubular flowers borne on single stems that arise from the base.

Agapanthus seem to enjoy being a little pot-bound. For this reason, they thrive and bloom profusely in containers. These plants are only semi-hardy in our zone (Zone 7a in Virginia).

Agapanthus africanus prefers full sun and moist, well-drained soil, but is drought tolerant. Agapanthus 'Peter Pan' is great for containers. Attractive to hummingbirds. Deer and rabbit resistant.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
