Agapanthus praecox ssp orientalis 'Delfina's Blush' (SMG Introduction 2006) - A selection made by San Marcos Growers from a seedling crop of Agapanthus praecox ssp orientalis. This is a full sized Agapanthus with flowers standing 4 feet tall. The flowers form in very uniform white buds and open as white flowers with a tinge of violet on petal tips. Plant in full sun to light shade and irrigate regularly to occasionally. Hardy and evergreen to 20-25 degrees F and should be root hardy with mulching to considerably lower. This very distinct and strong grower was selected by Maintenance Supervisor Delfina Martinez.  This description is based on our research and observations of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or have additional cultural tips that would aid others growing Agapanthus 'Delfina's Blush' .
