Agapanthus praecox ssp. orientalis 'Full Moon' PPAF (Full Moon Lily of the Nile). This is a large Agapanthus with evergreen foliage 36 to 42 inches tall and in June and July appear the tall inflorescence with flowers in large rounded heads of many flowers opening at the same time that have light blue petals with a central stripe of dark blue. 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. With its unusual striped flowers 'Full Moon' should be a nice great specimen plant or planted in mass as a large groundcover planting. This plant was bred by Richard Jamieson at his Black Dog Nursery in Cape Town, South Africa. It received US Plant Patent 26,421 in February 2016 and is marketed in the U.S. by Ball Horticulture. Image on this page courtesy of Ball Horticulture. Though this is a very nice plant with a large rounded umble of flowers but we have discontinued production of it because we felt the name somewhat deceptively implies it is white - perhaps would have been better to be called 'Blue Moon'.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Agapanthus 'Full Moon' PP26,421.
