Product Overview

Agapanthus 'Storm Cloud'
This variety produces luxurious green foliage that becomes reddish-purple in winter; violet-blue flowers appear in mid-summer on tall stems; a perfect accent planting in the garden or massed along borders

Storm Cloud Agapanthus is an herbaceous evergreen perennial with a rigidly upright and towering form. Its medium texture blends into the garden, but can always be balanced by a couple of finer or coarser plants for an effective composition.

This plant will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. It is a good choice for attracting bees and butterflies to your yard. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Storm Cloud Agapanthus is recommended for the following landscape applications:

  • Accent
  • Mass Planting
  • General Garden Use
  • Container Planting

Features

Storm Cloud Agapanthus features bold clusters of violet trumpet-shaped flowers rising above the foliage from early to mid summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its narrow leaves remain dark green in color throughout the year. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Planting & Growing

Storm Cloud Agapanthus will grow to be about 15 inches tall at maturity extending to 4 feet tall with the flowers, with a spread of 3 feet. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years.

This plant performs well in both full sun and full shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid. It can be propagated by division; however, as a cultivated variety, be aware that it may be subject to certain restrictions or prohibitions on propagation.

Storm Cloud Agapanthus is a fine choice for the garden, but it is also a good selection for planting in outdoor pots and containers. With its upright habit of growth, it is best suited for use as a 'thriller' in the 'spiller-thriller-filler' container combination; plant it near the center of the pot, surrounded by smaller plants and those that spill over the edges. Note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden.
