Agapanthus praecox ssp orientalis 'Variegata' (Variegated Lily of the Nile) - Evergreen perennial grows to about 1 foot tall by 2 feet wide with narrow (1/2" to 1") variegated leaves that have yellow striations through a greenish mid-rib with yellow margins and bears very pale blue to nearly white flowers in summer/fall on 2 foot stalks. Plant in full sun to light shade and irrigate regularly to occasionally. Hardy and evergreen to 20-25 degrees F and root hardy with mulching to considerably lower. We purchased this beautiful Agapanthus from Ed Carman's Nursery in the 1980's.  The information provided on this page is based on the research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations of our nursery crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We also will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Agapanthus praecox ssp orientalis 'Variegata'.
