Agapanthus-Blue-IceAgapanthus “Blue Ice” is a new cultivar of a tough and hardy plant that grows well here in Sydney
school children delight in beheading them with sticks and shouting like the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland
“Off with their heads!”

    I first encountered Agapanthus in an old ruined castle in Cornwall. They grow everywhere there. Magical hues of blue. Your photos are beautiful.

  2. These flowers are everywhere here. Mostly purple.

  3. I was a Mad Sally in a Christmas parade one year . . . we knighted people at random, especially those who engaged with us, with our agapathus wands. I think of it often when I see them in bloom . . . even in my own garden!

    I lost most of my roadside ferns last year to two boys with sticks! Love the first photo. Such elegance.

  5. Liz says:

    Beautiful … made me think of the Yorktown Onions ( which are Alliums) that would bloom along the Colonial Parkway in Virginia. Your Agapanthus has a much more subtle coloration, but both plants have a wonderfully globular form on elegantly long stems.

    I must buy some of this delicate colour. Mine are all the big dark blue, with the occasional surprise of a white bloom. I love them, and watch for them each year, hoping for a good season. Never disappointed…
