Crocosmia v. agapanthus
Three years ago I cut a hole in the middle of the grass and planted a clump of agapanthus which came from elsewhere in the garden. It thrived and flowered, then I enlarged the bed and surrounded the agapanthus with crocosmia. Until this year, they seemed happy together, and the agapanthus grew a little taller than the crocosmia. This year, the crocosmia gave a terrific display, but the agapanthus seems overwhelmed, its leaves have reached two-thirds of the usual length, and it has two small flower heads instead of the usual 15-20 big ones. It's positively cringing! If you big up the top picture you can just about see it.
If I dig out half the crocosmias, is the agapanthus likely to re-assert itself? Or would I do better to re-locate the agapanthus? They are in front of the house which faces west.
