notes

Agapanthus Fireworks lives up to its name and explodes in a large, bi-colour display of flowers comprising trumpet-shaped florets, which graduate startlingly from a dark centre to bright white petal tips. Each separate flower head will bloom for a long time, during a flowering season that lasts from July to September.

Insights

Some Agapanthuses are referred to colloquially as Lilies of the Nile or African Lilies, because they originated in southern Africa. Now the numerous varieties have spread to most hot areas of the globe. The name Agapanthus, appropriately derives from the Greek words agape and anthos, meaning love and flower.
