    Might be Agapanthus.

    Thanks for the sugestion, it was growing in a border in amongst a lot of stuff

    If the roots were fat and white, it probably is agapanthus as KEF says. 

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Thanks sounds like it's an agapanthus, I'm happy

  • They do have the habit of seeding around easily altho' I am a little surprised at how big this one is . If it is an Agapanthus it is definitely more than 1 year old.

    My agapanthus leaves are sort of fleshier and more rounded at the tips.  This, however, does rather look like Hemerocallis - Day Lily.  Is that a possibility?

  • Yes, Shrinking Vi....

    Deffo looks like hemerocallis to me.

    Thanks for your replies, yes a hermerocallis is more of a possibility. It was dug up out of a neighbours garden, she didn't want it anymore and she called it the lily

    I thought agapanthus & hemerocallis were the same thing

    Hollie:  Agapanthus and hemerocallis are not the same!  Agapanthus has large heads of blue (sometimes white) flowers later in the seaon;  Hemerocallis have lily-like flowers, each of which blooms for a day (hence "day lily") and are preominantly in the yellow/orange spectrum.  Let us know how this plant performs - and if you can, post a picture:  my money's on Day Lily image
