Our climate is perfect for growing agapanthus (Agapanthus africanus), also known as Lily of the Nile or African lily, even though they are not in the lily family. With large masses of blue, purple or white flowers borne on long slender stems, the hearty agapanthus makes quite an impression in the gardenscape with very little care. Native to regions of that share our same temperate climate, these virtually cast iron plants flourish here. In colder frosty climates they are kept as prized greenhouse plants, which seems funny since they literally grow like weeds in most of.

The agapanthus grows from an underground rhizome, which is a horizontal underground plant "stem" that produces roots and holds onto nutrients and water for the plant. The agapanthus rhizome produces thick white fleshly roots and sends up shoots above the ground that turn into lush evergreen leaves.  

Around June, long stems shoot up from the plant, which can range from 2 to 4 feet in height, depending on the variety. The stalks are topped off with a large bud that eventually opens into a burst of star-shaped flowers that resemble a dazzling fireworks display exploding against the sky. Use them as cut-flowers in a 4th of July flower arrangement using, blue and white agapanthus, red Gerbera daisies and white hydrangeas.

You can grow agapanthus in both the garden and in containers and they prefer fertile, well-drained soil, as well as a sunny location. In hotter areas, you can plant them in partial shade, but along the cooler coastline, they need the sun to produce an abundance of flowers. Considered to be a drought-tolerant plant once established, they also do not require a lot of water or fertilizer to thrive. After the flowers fade, cut back the flower stalks.

About every four to five years in the fall after the hot weather has passed, you can divide your plants and replant them in other areas of your garden or share them with friends. Cut back all the leaves and dig up the rhizomes, being as careful as possible not to damage the plants root structure.

Divide the rhizomes using a sharp knife and replant the rhizomes, root side down and giving them about 2 feet apart from each other. You can also feed them a little Super Thrive to keep them from going into shock after they are replanted. Cool fall months are the best time to divide your plants or add new ones to your garden.

If you grow agapanthus in containers, they prefer to be somewhat root bound in their pots and they should be fed in early spring with a diluted organic fertilizer, since nutrients diminish faster in container soil than in the garden. If the pot they are planted in made from a medium, such as clay they will need more water because the clay will dry out the soil quite fast.

When handling these plants wear gloves, since they are considered to be poisonous and their sap can irritate the skin. If you have dogs or cats that chew plants, even though they are considered minimally toxic, you many want to keep them in an area away from your pets, especially after cutting or digging them up.

My partner and I have been together for 12 years but we broke up 3 years ago after our fight over his cheating habits which they all say it's not their fault but I was the one getting hurt. I was upset over the whole issue that I had to call for the separation but I felt really bad. The separation really had effects on my daughter who had to live away from her father that I had to think of a way to settle things out and find solution to my husband's behavior. I found out about a spell caster Doctor JOE who helped me with the problem to make my spouse come back to me and make him stop cheating. Soon, Richard came back to me begging at Sicily where I stayed after our divorce and I told him he has to show me he has changed for me to believe him. He came back twice after that day to Sicily begging me to have him back. Its been 8 months now since my husband came back to me and we have been living together since that day. I believe this man can also help too with your problem. His email address is drjoehome@gmail.com or whatsapp 2348155730398

I found out on 25th September 2016 that I am a carrier of the hepatitis B virus. I am from South Australia and was on a scholarship studying in Canada when I found out through medical test to extent my visa. The university asked me to go back home for treatment. Now I am at home and the doctor says my liver is affected and viral load is high and am at risk, so I require medication and stated there is no cure or medication. I and my family are devastated by this news. I hope I can get back to my studies as the scholarship gave me 12 months to get better. I hope that one day there will be a cure for this disease. But God send this healer to me a Dr from health med lab Clinic who i was directed to by a family friend, the Dr deliver the medicine to me and with guideline on how to use it after a period of 2 Months i went for test i was totally negative, please my advice is for you to contact him if you are passing through this today here is their private email address healthmedlab@gmail.com They cure any STI/STD.

I want to say hello to the world at large, I am very grateful for the good deeds DR. obor did for me, I was a HIV patient, everything went bad for me, I couldn’t do things with my friends anymore, I loosed my job, I loosed everything, I was even waiting for death itself, I went searching on the internet I saw many testimonies on how different spell casters helped people in curing their deadly diseases, I collected one spell caster’s email, which DR. obor I emailed him and he answered me, I told him all problems, he ask me not to worry, that I will be free from the deadly disease, which I did, he casted the spell, and told me that he will send a holy water to me through courier services, I was surprised, because he did not mention it to me before, I paid for the courier delivery service, I got a holy water, he asked me to drink it which I did and he asked me to go for a medical check-up in a hospital, I went to the hospital I went for a HIV test, I was tested HIV negative, I was shocked, I asked myself, “is there still good helpers out there”? I promised to share my testimony to the whole world, I’m now free, I have a better job, if you are passing through pains you need help you can share your problems to DR. obor through you can call on this number 2348105813057 you can email dr obor on omiawaleherbalhome@gmail.com
