Agapanthus Flowers: Tips For Growing Agapanthus Plants

I love Agapanthus. Saw them everywhere in Cornwall - looked stunning. They don't look quite as good as this in my garden- yet!

Liriope muscari - An extremely useful plant, which will tolerate a range of conditions including dry shade and drought. Dark green, blade-like leaves provide year-round interest and in autumn, just as other flowers are beginning to fade, vibrant, long-lasting wands of deep violet flowers rise above the foliage. Lily-turf is perfect for edging small, shady spaces - the broad grass-like foliage contrasts beautifully with large leaved plants, or for planting in groups beneath deciduous shrubs.

I love these Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Tom Thumb' which make an interesting alternative to the usual box balls. The young leaves are green but they quickly turn this blackish purple.
