Agapanthus loves the sun and creates a beautiful display of white or violet globe shape colors. They are used in gardens as well as street landscaping in borders and they complement a lot of landscaping for major urban cityscapes and office buildings. Agapanthus Praecox flowers are a set of trumpet-shaped flowers that form in the shape of a ball or a globe. The name is composed of greek (agape) meaning love, and (anthos) meaning flower, but also commonly known as Lily of the Nile though not really a Lily that is the popular name. It is native to South Africa.

About Online Flower Garden & Dino

Dino
I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
