The name Agapanthus is derived from the Greek ‘Agape’ meaning love and ‘Anthos’ meaning flower. Introduced into Europe in 1679 from South Africa it originated in the coldest temperatures of the Western Cape. The flower heads, known as umbels, are made up of tubular flowers and range in colors of blue to violet and also white. Keep the plants on the dry side except use ample water during the growing season.
