Better Ways to Use Agapanthus to Enhance Your Landscape
White-flowering agapanthus in between sheared boxwood balls and tufts of ornamental grasses in a backyard garden.

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. However, in being so, she suffers from a case of over-familiarity. Let's rethink this wonderfully versatile perennial. Mix 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. This is done by poking up between sheared boxwood balls and tufts of ornamental grasses. Wow.
