Hi I found this pic online. I love the flower but it does not say what it is. Does anybody know?





Hard to say which variety without more detail as there are so many lighter blue ones.

Yes, a lovely Agapanthus..South African in origin I think. You get all shades of blue and white. It likes to have a warm sunny spot with it's roots restricted, so best grown in a pot. Mind you, I had one in my last garden in the soil but it was crammed up against a border edging and had tree roots close to it as well so it was happy. Some are hardier than others, so choose carefully :)

It needs good drainage, too--in a pot, I would use cactus mix. There are a few "hardy" varieties, but I don't know if they will be hardy enough to take a Pennsylvania winter, especially if away from the coast. Most would be indoor/outdoor plants.
