> I had never really understood why my mother-in-law, when she moved down to Austin, was so dead set on growing agapanthus everywhere. She loves them. I like them too but I always found them difficult to grow and no so showy. Plus, the deer eat them, so that limits where I can use them. So why so crazy about them?
Then I went to Santa Barbara this weekend…and they are EV-ERY-WHERE!!!!!!!
Good lord, entire beds filled with agapanthus. Both white and blue. All blooming like crazy. And my mother in law grew up in S. CA. So now I know the source of her obsession.
