African lily

Agapanthus africanus

''Agapanthus africanus'' is a native of the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. ''A. africanus'' is more difficult to grow in gardens than ''A. praecox'', and most plants sold as ''A. africanus'' are ''A. praecox''.

It has a short stem bearing a tuft of long, narrow, arching leaves 10–35 cm long and 1–2 cm broad, and a central flower stalk 25–60 cm tall, ending in an umbel of 20-30 white, or bright blue, funnel-shaped flowers, each flower 2.5–5 cm diameter.
