|Adaptable and easy to care for, these natives of southern Africa have long-stalked clusters of blue or white flowers and glossy, strap-like leaves. Excellent cut flowers. Grow outdoors in mild climates or indoors in pots in colder regions. Plant in large masses, drifts or near pools. Drought-tolerant once established, but for best blooms give plenty of moisture. In hot summer areas, plant in partial sun. Like loamy earth, but tolerate dense soils. Divide every 5 to 6 years, when plants become crowded and flowering decreases.
One and one-half foot tall flower clusters produce up to 30 trumpet-shaped blue flowers that open gradually. Depending on the climate, can be evergreen or deciduous.
