    Oooooh! thank you so much!  I've never heard of it!! Shall Google all about it now, can you dig up and divide like an agapanthus?

    I have one of these and had forgotten what it was called, mine only has one flower though as i planted it last year,  i think it was a bulb?, just a shame you have to bend down to appreciate the lovely flower as it hangs down, i would have thought you can split them after flowering has finished if it need moving.

    One of my absolute favourites, but I left it too late to get any for this year. The seed heads are wonderful too - they turn upwards and go pointy and look like fairy castles :-)

    I like the way the buds face up, the flowers then face down then the seeds stand up. 

    I find they self seed quite happily too.

    I love them.

    I thought it was an agapanthus earlier in the year! I was mightily surprised when I saw it again!!  My mum said it did nothing last year at all and this year it's magnificent.  I'm definitely going to get some bulbs for my garden! image
