Best in full sun to part shade, with moderate water. This sister hybrid to ‘Elaine’ was a California’s LA State and County Arboretum 1990 introduction that was a hybrid developed by Archie A. Amate from Huntington Beach in 1978. Mr. Amate noted that the plants he was working with were Agapanthus africanus and A. praecox ssp. orientalis but did that “the seed and pollen parents can not be identified with certainty”. Hardy to 20 degrees F. Compared to A. ‘Storm Cloud’ it is a larger more robust plant with larger-wider leaves and taller stems and larger flowers.
