Eye-catching Exotic-looking Agapanthus (African Lily, Lily of the Nile). Few plant lovers forget their first glimpse of Agapanthus. In full bloom, its umbels, ranging in colour from deep violet-blue to pure white, spell love at first sight, which may account for its botanical name, an adaptation of the Greek words for love (agape) and flower (anthos). Pink- flowering forms are also being developed. #Agapanthus #Exotic #Flower #Garden #Plant |
✯ Osteospermum /African Daisy. Not to be confused with the annual Dimorphotheca. Although most commercial Osteospermums are labeled as annuals, they are in fact half-hardy perennials or subshrubs. This means they are not entirely hardy and will therefore not survive persistent frosts. However, they can be propagated by cuttings or overwintered in a frost free environment. Flower May to Fall. #AfricanDaisy #Flower #Garden Osteospermum |
