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.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We will also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information about this plant, in particular if this information is contrary to what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Agapanthus 'Snow Pixie' PP15,470.
