Welcome to my zone 9 garden. My roots are deeply planted in the sandy soil of sub-tropical central Florida, where the summers are long and hot, but the rest of the year is paradise!

A Show Stopper

The agapanthus is so fanciful with its large puff of dazzling blue color that sits atop a tall sturdy stem. At the first sign of buds, I impatiently watched as the stems reached for the sky and waited eagerly for the flowers to pop open. I was not disappointed with the show they put on.

Oh Susan, I know just what you mean. I have been watching mine for a couple of weeks waiting for that first burst of show-stopping loveliness. One is open the others are on their way. Yours have bloomed very fervently.

I have mine located in different areas of my garden as I have divided and transplanted.Some bloom better than others. It looks like yours are in full sun? They look really great! You should be enjoying them for several weeks now.

Meems...Mine used to be in shade but I moved them this spring, cut them back and, boy, have they done well. I just marvel at how unique they are.
