Agapanthus is a rhizome and part of the lily
When used in a container, make sure you separate them every two to three years to keep them from
becoming root bound.
You should only plant one rhizome in a 12-inch pot, as planting any more than this will
result in poor growth and reduced blooming capabilities.
Another name for the agapanthus is African
lily. Their blue-purple color is a
favorite of all gardeners and mixes well with brighter purples, yellows and whites.
The blooms of the
agadanthus tower above the green foliage; foliage that resembles that of daffodils and lilies.
need loamy soil that consists partially of decayed leaves or dry manure. As for the light they need, they do well
in partial sun/shade.
The agapanthus should be stored indoors during the winter if temperatures fall below
20F. Otherwise, mulch them well to winter outside.
