Agapanthus praecox ssp. orientalis 'Full Moon' PPAF (Full Moon Lily of the Nile). This is a large Agapanthus with evergreen foliage 36 to 42 inches tall and in June and July appear the tall inflorescence with flowers in large rounded heads of many flowers opening at the same time that have light blue petals with a central stripe of dark blue. 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. With its unusual striped flowers 'Full Moon' should be a nice great specimen plant or planted in mass as a large groundcover planting. This plant was bred by Richard Jamieson at his Black Dog Nursery in Cape Town, South Africa. It received US Plant Patent 26,421 in February 2016 and is marketed in the U.S. by Ball Horticulture.

Though this is a very nice plant with a large rounded umble of flowers but we have discontinued production of it because we felt the name somewhat deceptively implies it is white - perhaps would have been better to be called 'Blue Moon'.  The information provided on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery's library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations in our nursery of crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Agapanthus praecox ssp orientalis 'Full Moon' PP26,421.
