The lesser spotted aggie
Now all the Australian readers will laugh, but I have been at these agapanthus for three years no. Trying to get them to flower.
I know you use agapanthus as ground cover and treat with a touch of disdain. They are so ordinary in Sydney gardens.
But these are the first flowers I have seen in mine.
For a few years now I have been admiring the strappy foliage and just wondering if anything more would happen.
And glory be, this July they have finally decided to throw up flower spikes.
It’s a bit of a shame the pale blue does clash somewhat with the more strident colours of the lavender beside them. But I’m not complaining! And I don’t dare move them again.
They have gone from pot to ground and are obviously happy where they are in the barn garden. I have six plants.
The reason why they have been in pots is we really are too cold here in winter to leave them in the ground. So I have been uprooting them. I think this year I will just mulch them very heavily and hope for the best.
