Better Ways to Use Agapanthus

Better Ways to Use Agapanthus

Poor agapanthus, choice plant of curbside gardens in lots of warm season zones. It’s not her fault that she’s so useful, easy-to-grow, and brings a whimsical elegance, but in being so, suffers from a case of over-familiarity. Let’s rethink this wonderfully versatile perennial by mixing it into all kinds of landscapes and picking varieties with a range of colors and sizes. We’ll start right here with white-flowering agapanthus that delivers the “shock and awe” element of this modern landscape by poking up between sheared boxwood balls and tufts of ornamental grasses. Wow.
