This plant is wonderful. It compliments pink mophead Hydrangeas beautifully. It does need to be thinned out every few years and will resist blooming if not watered enough. Wonderful scent as well.

Beautiful plant the first year. Large, healthy, many blooms. Second year, no flowers, minimum growth.

This is the tough little agapanthus that is evergreen and has survived winters here down into the teens (F). It is just like its big brother, only smaller and much easier to use as a potted plant and doesn't loose its foliage in the winter. Does require to be rootbound before it will bloom, hates to be disturbed. Can be propagated either from division, or will start from seed. If by seed be prepared to be very patient for it to bloom can take years.
It will survive long periods of drought, but does benefit from applications of liquid fertilizer. In my opinion one can never have enough agapanthus, giant or small. Good gardening.
