Two years ago when my mother was visiting me she was really intrigued by the large amount and variety of Agapanthus growing here in California.
I decided while she was visiting to buy an Agapanthus plant for my backyard. I have been hunting for a picture of it when it was first planted, and I can’t find one. I surely took one, but maybe not.
Last summer I watched for my Agapanthus to bloom, but it stubbornly refused to send forth stalks. I was disappointed and began to wonder if I had purchased a bad plant. However, a little research found that they often will not bloom the first year after planting. This is actually a picture from early this spring, I could not find a picture from last summer.
This spring I watched the plant carefully and just before leaving for my trip to Turkey I saw the first stalks starting to appear. I was wondering if I would see blooms upon my return from the trip.
This is as far as the post goes tonight. Someday soon I will write another post with the blooms starting to open. It has been fascinating to take pictures every day and document the small changes.
