Agapanthus 'Hanneke' PP26,429 - A tall evergreen to semi-evergreen cultivar to 3 feet tall with broad leaves. It is mid to late season (June-August) blooming with dark purplish blue flowers held in full heads on a tall stalk. The pedicels are semi-pendulous so flowers dangle slightly. 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 cultivar is a tall plant with long flower stems useful for cut flower use. It has remained evergreen for us the has been known to also drop leaves just prior to new ones emerging. This plant is the result of open pollination of an unnamed Agapanthus praecox from 2002 in Richard Jamieson's breeding program at his Black Dog Nursery in Cape Town, South Africa and he named it for his wife. It received US Plant Patent PP26,429 in February 2016 and is marketed in the U.S. by Ball Horticulture. We first received this plant to trial in 2014 and are selling off our trial plants. We have not yet decided to continue to offer this cultivar but it is both unique and attractive.  The information on this page is based on research about this plant that is conducted in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in the nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it. We also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Agapanthus 'Hanneke' PP26,429.
