Native to South Africa, the four main species of the genus are A. Africanus, with long, curved leaves, A. praecox and A. Orientalis, the most cultivated species, and finally, A, Inapertus with blue-flowers, are the pendants that are almost completely closed.
These can be thin, evergreen or semi-evergreen. Thinner varieties lose their leaves during the winter months and are usually stiffer than evergreen varieties. More semi-evergreen varieties are evergreen in warm regions and thin in cool regions.
Evergreen varieties thrive in 8 to 11 zones, whereas thin crops usually harden up to 6 zones.

To display snow-white flowers from mid-summer to late, try growing a group of A’s in your flowerbed and the Afrikaans ‘Albus’ on the border.
The individual flowers are horn-shaped and decorate the stems two to three feet high. This cultivation spreads from three to four feet.
For the wonderful contrast of a red, blue or greenhouse, plant the entire boundary of the albus along the driveway.
In winter and spring, you will appreciate the lower tufts of leaves in the form of strips characteristic of evergreen “Albus”.
Have you ever dreamed of delicate light purple flowers with interesting, risky habits? Then “Angela” is right for you.

“Angela” may look decorative but she is up to four feet tall from her zenith, about two feet wide and blooming in the middle. Evergreen and hardy in 8 to 11 regions, ‘Angela’ looks especially beautiful as she grows up in hot pink Echinacea.
3. BLACK PANTHA
For tight, glossy black buds that open into dark purple flowers, try the awesome “Black Pantha” (A. precocious var. Orientalis) on your flower bed.
An evergreen variety of grey-green color, “Black Pantha” grows one to three feet long from flower stalks and spreads from two to three feet.
After all, the plant blooms throughout the spring and summer and the cut flowers stay in a vase for up to two weeks!

4. BLUE HEAVEN
For a farmer who reminds you of the blue sky on grey days, try planting a “blue paradise”.
With sky-blue heavenly flowers above the stems, three feet high and three feet wide, “Blue Haven” provides a pop color to the flower bed or vase. Or both.
Hardy, between 7 and 11, blooms “Blue Haven” in the middle of summer, then re-flowers the once-charming Periwingle in the autumn for another goal.

This color house is ideal for container gardening or planting among other growing products in the flower bed in front of the house.

Suitable for lovers of color jewelry and everything beautiful, the ‘Ever Amethyst’, part of the Ever 6 series of South African de Wet enviroscaping, shines in shades of purple that match its description stone.

13. DROPS OF GOLD
No, it’s not the color of the golden flower in the case of the “golden drop”, it’s the leaves.
Unlike other varieties of agapanthus, the leaves of this cultivar have greenish golden edges in the middle, which gives the garden interest and texture.
Since “Golden Drop” is evergreen, you will enjoy its unique leaves in 11 zones all year round.
Compare these leaves too soft blue flowers and you have a plant that is reminiscent of a summer day spent on the beach.
The “Golden Drop” has a short growth and reaches only 16-18 inches in height and width, so it is suitable for pots, planters and small patio gardens.
Also known as the Prairie Agapathas, this slender ‘grass crop’ (A. imperretus var. Pendulus) is three feet long and wide and sports light green grass-like leaves and deep purple flowers.
“GrassCop” succeeds in 8 to 11 regions but in the winter months, you can increase it in regions 6 and 7 if you wish to bring it indoors. The strain of this summer flower is named after the town of Grasscup in the beautiful province of Mpumalanga in South Africa.

23. SUMMER SKIES
The “summer sky” has strip flowers that remind you of the summer sky just before sunset: a milky blue color is so soft that you can wrap yourself up and take a nap if you wish.
In strong zone numbers, the “summer sky” blooms from mid-summer to autumn and is semi-evergreen, with leaves falling in cold regions and evergreen in warm places. . It is three feet long and two feet wide
