South African Bulbs in my Garden

A web site I visited has links to various other sites. One was a South African Bulb site. I grow these plants, most are for warm zones and bloom mid-summer. Here are pics from last year.

  1. Agapanthus! Wow! Luck finding the violet one. That grows in northern parts of India, as it's too hot here in south. Isn't Kniphofia the Torch Lily? Whoa, what wonderful selection, Nell!

  2. My kniphofias are coming back, but the crocomias aren't yet. I think they still may. I think agapanthus is grown as an annual here, but I'm not sure. I sure like it, but for some reason haven't tried it yet. I didn't know these were from South Africa. Your butterfly is glad they are in your garden!

I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
