Agapanthus or Blue Lilly, or African Lilly is one of the most wonderful summer plants you can find. Unfortunately without a fragrance but the displays are stunning. Flowering in August, Agapanthus require south facing aspect in full sun with well-draining soil. #Agapanthus #Africanlilly #Bluelilly

Midknight Blue® Agapanthus/ Lily of the Nile (Agapanthus x ‘Monmid’) Zones 6–10.

Agapanthus africanus 'Albus' - A wonderful white form of African lily, with globes of trumpet-shaped flowers from July to September. This bold perennial provides a perfect focal point for a sunny, well-drained border or in a patio container. Where temperatures fall below zero, container-grown specimens should be overwintered in a frost-free place.

Agapanthus africanus subsp. africanus. Agapanthus are one of South Africa's best known garden plants and are grown in most countries in the world. Their strap-like leaves and striking blue or white flowers make them favourites in plant borders as well as in containers. They are all easy to grow except for A. africanus and A. walshii which a recent publication (Zonneveld & Duncan 2003) has proposed is a subspecies of A. africanus.
