Agapanthus, also known as the Lily-of-the-Nile, originates from South Africa and belongs to the family of Liliaceae.
The Latin name Agapanthus comes from the Greek word "agape" which literally means love and "Anthos" which stands for flower.
The United East India Company founded in 1652 a settlement at the Cape in South Africa.
From this settlement, many African plants were shipped to Holland, as well as Agapanthus.
Over the course of years there have been so many hybridizing efforts that there are currently more than 600 different varieties, in white and blue to almost black.
The Agapanthus we offer, from both their original living environment, from South Africa and Ecuador.
