Known since 1878 in France, 1885 in England, and 1888 in The Netherlands. Most likely discovered in France, as E.-A. Carrière (1880) wrote concerning a plant grown by M. Godefroy-Lebeuf, Argenteuil, France, and accompanied his
next mention of the same plant, in 1882, with a line drawing (zie figuur). The plant was listed by nearly all fin de siècle nurseries that offered Agapanthus, for a rather cheap price compared with other cultivars offered. Still in cultivation, especially in collections, and readily available commercially, at least not rare.
Somewhat strange low-growing, evergreen Agapanthus, with double light blue flowers and broad leaves, sheltered location required. Is double-flowered! A kind for the collectors! The buttons do not always open, but if he does it is worth it.
Full sun in well-permeable soil, tub plant, patio plant
June to August
