|Agapanthus praecox||Alliaceae||African Lily|
|In Alderney||Close Up|
Description - This plant forms large clumps of long, narrow fleshy leaves, then produces round flowerheads of 40-60 bright blue flowers, on a stalk about 70cm tall.
Habitat - It is often found where garden rubbish has been deposited, or in waste land, and appears able to grow in quite poor soil.
Comments - A garden escape which can persist, and occasionally seeds itself. As its name suggests it is originally from South Africa, but now thrives in many of our gardens.
