Agapanthus are quite common summer flowers in our area. They are drought tolerant and pest and disease free. The only downfall to them that I am aware of is that voles LOVE to eat their fleshy roots, but they eat almost everything else too. I have dozens of the light blue ones, white ones, large ones and miniature ones. I even have some with variegated leaves. But the ones that really seduce me are the dark purple ones like this 'Purple Cloud'. The color is so rich!
