Agapanthus for vertical interest



Add some vertical presence by planting an agapanthus. ‘Black Panther’ is a deep-blue that emerges from black buds. ‘Megan’s Mauve’ is a subtle gloaming shade that shines in evening light. They’ll both provide linear leaves and shades of blue to counteract the many yellows set to explode in the late-summer borders. It’s a myth that you starve them: feed them and water them. South Africa gets rainfall in abundance at times. Plant in pots or a garden hotspot, but they need bright light.
