Daily Flower Candy: Agapanthus africanus

Reading time 1 minute

Those of you who check in to The Frustrated Gardener regularly will know I’m a big fan of Agapanthus. Our majestic Agapanthus africanus come into bloom in late July. The seed heads that follow look magnificent well into autumn. Avoid the temptation to keep them intact through the winter, as they will seed prolifically and sprout from every nook and cranny for years to come. Agapanthus africanus is a highly variable species, so is best bought from a reputable nursery rather than grown from seed.

  1. Oh dear… now I am having a Mortica Addams moment… I cut all the heads off mine, a very tedious job, as the green foliage is much more appealing than the blooms which end up all over the place and in the pool which is a hideous task to scoop up. In Australia we love this plant because it is so drought tolerant and very hardy. Many country driveways use these as hedging plants on either side of the entrance. Oh well what is one mans poison is another mans pleasure! .. ________________________________
