Agapanthus 'Hanneke' PP26,429 - A tall evergreen to semi-evergreen cultivar to 3 feet tall with broad leaves. It is mid to late season (June-August) blooming with dark purplish blue flowers held in full heads on a tall stalk. The pedicels are semi-pendulous so flowers dangle slightly. 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 cultivar is a tall plant with long flower stems useful for cut flower use. It has remained evergreen for us the has been known to also drop leaves just prior to new ones emerging. This plant is the result of open pollination of an unnamed Agapanthus praecox from 2002 in Richard Jamieson's breeding program at his Black Dog Nursery in Cape Town, South Africa and he named it for his wife. It received US Plant Patent PP26,429 in February 2016 and is marketed in the U.S. by Ball Horticulture. We first received this plant to trial in 2014 and are selling off our trial plants. We have not yet decided to continue to offer this cultivar but it is both unique and attractive.  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 'Hanneke' PP26,429.
