I have about 20 Agapanthus that were planted in the ground in March and flowered beautifully all spring. After this long, hot summer they are now obviously in decline. They droop, the edges are brown and crumbly and yet they also seem to be rotting in some cases. What's going on?? Please help, they were so beautiful.

On plant Agapanthus



Agapanthus are very subject to root rot in hot, humid weather, Lisa. We have to grow them in nearly pure sand to get them through the monsoon season, here. You might be able to salvage some by transplanting them to faster draining soil when it gets a little cooler. In the meantime, Captan fungicide may be necessary to keep them alive.
