Tassie Agapanthus

I'm just hoping this will upload while I'm.in Tasmania.
Everywhere, in gardens, verges and parks, blue and white Agapanthus are busy flowering...they're stunning!

What a beautiful sight they must be.... to have them growing naturally.

Lovely. We also have agapanthus planted in parks, avenues and house gardens. My daughter's preferred flowers. Will try to grow them in our garden.

They are such a pretty shade of blue. They grow wild on the Isles of Scilly too.

Great to hear you’re keeping in touch with us Janey. How gorgeous to be surrounded by such a profusion of blue! x

These are really lovely pictures, Janey! 😀 Agapanthus are such lovely flowers! 😀

A few years ago a friend gave me some & they flowered I think two years then I didn't see them any more! I've no idea what could have happened to them!

There are some shops with a big carpark alongside our block of flats & there are several flowerbeds. In the central one, which is a big half Moon, the council planted some clumps of blue Agapanthus & now they flower every year! I take photos of them each time they flower as well 😀

Thank you so much everyone, they really are a wonderful sight to see. I've never grown them myself, but will give them a go this year..

That’s good to hear, Janey. You’ve chosen a great time to miss the British winter . . . 3 degrees here, brrr . . !

Cold here now, we have snow expected at the beginning of February.......hope its not too much!!

22 Jan, 2019

 

We had a cm of snow here last night but when the sun got to work on it it soon melted away! Tonight we expect -4C! I don't know if the precautions I've taken with the few plants I have that would die in a frost will be sufficient. They have been so far as I've lost no plants to temps 3 degrees C below freezing.

The temps may not have got quite as low as forecast & my plants are still looking OK! 😀

I'm liking the idea of cold temps at the moment...we have 37°C today and thick smog in the Derwent valley, due to the raging Bush fires...:((

Uh oh, that is HOT. You’re right - we should appreciate our temperate climate. (46 in Adelaide yesterday!)

Wow Sheila, tooooo hot! Hope your family are all well..It's a bit extreme this year, that's climate change I suppose...:((
