Agapanthus season

Now that the jacarandas have finished their flush of purple, it's time for the agapanthuses to show their stuff. They are a very popular street planting, like this patch along the footpath in Chalmers St, Surry Hills. Occasionally plant vandals lop off their heads, but I haven't seen any of that this year (so far).

Aggies are native to South Africa.


  1. They're all over the place and beautiful indeed!

  2. tres belle fleur, et j'aime cette couleur (je dirais lavande comme couleur)

    very beautiful flower, and I like this color (I would say lavender like color)

  3. Blue and white - our colours of flag
    and also during a proper winter,
    snow and blue sky. Perhaps it`s here
    after Christmas in this odd year in Finland.
    All the best for you, Sally!

  4. I truly hope the vandals leave them alone. They are beautiful. I love purple, lavender, and green together.

  5. I like them! I have several plants in my garden, some fear the frost but not all of them, strange!
