Highlights this Summer

Just a taste of what's blooming at Wave Hill

African Lily

African Lily (Agapanthus africanus)

In summer, the African lily bears large rounded umbels of violet flowers above strap-like basal leaves. As it is not frost-hardy, this clump-forming, evergreen perennial from South Africa is container-grown at Wave Hill.
