Agapanthus (African Lily, Blue Lily, Lily of the Nile) -
A fascinating bluish-purple variety of Agapanthus joined our garden family in early January this year.
It had a lovely 66 cm (26 ins) tall budding spike then, that blossomed into a large 20-cm (8-in) globular flower head with fabulous blue and purple hues.

When lighted by the sun, the trumpet-shaped flowers seemed purplish to lilac, yet wonderfully blue-hued in the filtered shade.

Hello George,
A fascinating plant which we have in our Botanical Garden too. But a very difficult shape to make a good shot. Your solution to focus just on a few flower-heads seems to be the best. Very well done again!
Thanks and kind regards
