Agapanthus 'Snow Pixie' PP15,470 (Snow Pixie Agapanthus) - This is a dwarf evergreen plant with narrow bluish-green foliage and very attractive full clusters of white flowers that rise to 18-21 inches tall in the late spring and summer. 'Snow Pixie' is slightly shorter than the cultivar 'Rancho White' with narrower, blue-green foliage. This new Agapanthus comes from Ken Rigney of Southampton Great Britain who collected and sowed seed from a cultivated Agapanthus in Durban, South Africa. This seedling was selected for its short habit and floriferousness and because it remained evergreen when the temperature dropped below 15 F (-9.5C). Tolerant of many conditions, but during growing season and flowering, don't allow plants to dry out. This plant was trialled and marketed in the US by PlantHaven.  The information on this webpage is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in the nursery in containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it growing. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Agapanthus 'Snow Pixie' PP15,470.
