Maui Agapanthus

Purple Love Flower

A bed of showy purple Agapanthus flowers bloom on a lavender farm in upcountry Maui.

In tropical places like Maui–and its home territory of southern Africa–the Agapanthus is both deciduous (leafy) and evergreen. They grow up to 3 feet tall and are considered to be a weed in some parts of the world. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder…

The name Agapanthus comes from two Greek words combined: love and flower. Some people refer to the flower as an African lily, although it has no relationship with the lily family.
