Agapanthus 'Periwinkle Days' (Blue-violet Lily of the Nile) - A medium-large evergreen Agapanthus with foliage to 2 feet tall with narrow and clean 1 inch wide leaves that are mostly erect with outer leaves bending over slightly. In late spring and early summer the tall and slender 3 to 4 foot stalks rise well above the foliage bearing a full 8-9 inch wide clusters of many blue-violet colored flowers that have a darker stripe down the middle of each petal. 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 San Marcos Growers 2020 introduction is a very nice agapanthus which is in flower around summer solstice. It was discovered in 2015 as a spontaneous seedling hybrid within the stock corral which holds our extensive Agapanthus collection. We decided to grow it because of its nice flower color, its narrow clean foliage and because the height of the flowers, which display well above the foliage.  The information on this page is based on the research that we have conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from what we have found on reliable online sources, as well as from observations made of our crops of this plant growing in the nursery and of plants growing 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 'Periwinkle Days'.
