From This plant was the result of a breeding program at John and Gail Craigie's Pine Mountain Nursery in Pine Mountain, Queensland Australia aimed at producing blue and white bicolored Agapanthus orientalis flowers. This plant was selected in 1999 from seedlings resulting from self pollinating an Agapanthus orientalis cultivar with the breeder's code 'PMN01'.

My Experience: 

I purchased a 3-gallon pot at McCorkles in June 2012 with 2 plants in it and split it with a friend. I potted up one plant and overwintered it in the conservatory. I planted it in the Pool Lawn Border in 2013 but it did not bloom. I moved it to the Octagonal Perennial Garden in June 2014.
