HAVING CHANGEING POTS AFTER DAMAGE BUT MAINTAINING THE CLOSE COMPACT OF THE AGAPANTHUS-AND EXPECTEDNO FLOWERS THIS YEAR-BUT HAPPY TO SEE NO LESS THAN 5 FLOWERS STEMS WITH THREE SLOWLY OPENING UP AS WHITE-BUT WAS ASTOUNDED THAT ON TWO FLOWER STEMS-SOME DISTANCE BELOW THE MAIN FLOWERS IS A SECONDARY BLOOM BURSTING THROUGH THE STEMS ABOUT 6 INCHES BELOW-HAS ANYONE EXPERIENCED THIS BEFORE?-SEE ATTACHMENTS HOPE THEY ARE SHOWN CLEARLY TO VIEW-WEBB D
The opinion of the RHS is that the bent stems and the bursting of the stems at the kinks is attributable to this year’s bizarre weather - very, very wet, then warm and exceptionally dry, then cool and windy. I have only had this happen on a tall evergreen agapanthus not on the two medium sized deciduous ones. Incidentally, these photos were taken over a week ago and since then the stems are less twisted and the bursting buds have not developed any more.
