Stunning Agapanthus Plants For Your Garden
Agapanthus plants are perennial flowering plants that are blooms in shades of white, blue and purple. Indigenous to South Africa, agapanthus plants are known by different names, like African Lily, African Blue Lily and Lily of the Nile. Today, agapanthus is a plant of choice for the gardens all across the globe. Agapanthus propagation is done by separating the tuberous root clumps after the flowering season is over. As cold winter arrives, the fleshy rhizomes are dug from flower garden for overwintering purpose. Regarding how to divide agapanthus plants, the leafy part is first trimmed above the ground level. Using a spade or other suitable garden tool, loosen the soil away from the stem and several inches deep into the soil. Then, lift the stem portion carefully with the help of a garden trowel. Separate the rhizomes into smaller clumps, making sure that each clump has a sprout and healthy roots.
In hot climatic areas, planting of agapanthus is done immediately after dividing the rhizomes. For colder regions, wait till spring season, when the temperature is favorable for growing these perennial flowers. Agapanthus plants grow best in fertile, moist and well-drained soil types. Select sunlit areas in the yard, and dig planting holes (2-inch deep and 4-inch wide). Place one rhizome section in each of the hole, and cover the root portion with soil.
