Agapanthus praecox ssp orientalis 'Delfina's Blush' (SMG Introduction 2006) - A selection made by San Marcos Growers from a seedling crop of Agapanthus praecox ssp orientalis. This is a full sized Agapanthus with flowers standing 4 feet tall. The flowers form in very uniform white buds and open as white flowers with a tinge of violet on petal tips. 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 very distinct and strong grower was selected by Maintenance Supervisor Delfina Martinez.  The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated 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 praecox ssp orientalis 'Delfina's Blush'.
