Alluring Agapanthus

Awww the beautiful purple of Agapanthus! I love the piercing colour, and find Agapanthus to be a statuesque, regal plant, one that should be included in any summer garden. They are long lasting, an extra bonus. From where else, South Africa, but of course! I grow an Agapanthus cultivar of which I do not know the name of. It is outstanding!

Agapanthus praecox, the largest of the evergreen species is photographed below. Gaikaskop, Amatola Mtns., S.A. 2000M. January 2012. It is one of the most commonly grown ornamentals in the world. I live in Zone 6, and can overwinter this outdoors in the ground with mulch.
