An ebay seller I bought a crinum from was selling an agapanthus.I got outbid on ebay, but I decided it would be a good plant to try because of the blue color,which I don't have in any of my summer flowers.
Bought a dark blue (standard) agapanthus,and a light sky blue agapanthus to see how they grow.
Just planted today. I'm not sure if I'll get blooms this year.
There was a fall gathering of GA DGers several years back where several of us caravaned afterward to an end of year sale at a big wholesale grower in N. GA. They had Agapanthus in small pots for a few dollars. I bought one with expectations that it would get huge. We used to spend a lot of time in San Francisco. I only knew those giant stands of Agapanthus that are everywhere, including highway medians. I thought my purchase was a young plant. Now four or five years old, it is still small though spreading nicely. It blooms consecutively, several times from summer to fall with flowers under two inches. Not a floral wowzer but it fits in to my naturalized landscape
When is agapanthus supposed to bloom? I had planted one two years ago in a remote area and forgot I had planted it, so for the past two years I thought it was monkey grass coming up since there is a bunch of it nearby and had been weed wacking it every so often. This year it leafed out way ahead of the monkey grass so I thought whoops this is that plant I planted awhile ago. Didn't do anymore trimming on it and it has a nice bunch of leaves about a foot tall but didn't bloom yet.
I took a couple pictures of the small Blue sky agapanthus, but they weren't spectacular. I've just had the one bloom form the large dark blue, and one set of 4 scapes from the small ones. diddly may be appropriate.
Its just their first year in the ground, so I'm happy to get one set of blooms. I've also obtained a single unknown agapanthus from a friend which is just starting to get its foliage above ground.
