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 presented on this page is based on research that we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations we have made of it growing in the nursery's garden and in other gardens we have visited, as well how it performs in our nursery crops out in the field. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others as well and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they have knowledge of cultural information that would aid others in growing Agapanthus praecox ssp orientalis 'Variegata'.
