African Lily

The African Lily, also commonly referred to as Agapanthus, is easily my favorite plant in my garden at this point; it really thrives and looks good all year around. When not in bloom, it looks like a thick ornamental grass ideal for lining flower beds… but in the summer, when in bloom, it yields big, beautiful bursts of flowers that resemble fireworks. I initially used them to line the flower bed in the front of my house and I was so pleased with them that I carried them to the back as well, replacing long struggling Xanadu along my back fence.
