Until around 25 years ago I do not think that I had seen, or at least retained a memory of, an agapanthus.
All that changed when MGW and I purchased an old rambling 1920s home with an equally old and rambling garden.
We had agapanthus growing everywhere, courtesy of the previous owners.
These are some of the plants that travelled to a new home with us.
Google tells me they are Lily-Of-The-Nile, agapanthus.
Since our move we have noticed newer varieties being sold and are in the process of establishing some of them in our garden.
The purple variety, in the background is the one we refer to as the ‘Black Aggie’.
Nurseries and Google know it as the Black Pantha, agapanthus.
The Black Pantha agapanthus has spectacular deep purple colouring which is a gorgeous contrast to the blue agapanthus.
In another part of the garden there are some Queen Mum agapanthus.
The Queen Mum’s should produce decent blooms next spring and summer.
The Queen Mum petals which has dual-toned flower heads with are predominately white flower heads which transition gracefully from a purple base to a white tip.
