Blooming Like Normal

“Blooming Like Normal”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

This past winter, my agapanthus foliage was frozen back. This was the first time that this has ever happened. Usually, the agapanthus comes through the winter just fine in my zone 8 garden. In late January, when I saw the dead foliage, I was panicked. I was afraid there would be no blooms this summer. Fortunately, several readers told me not to worry that theirs freezes back and still blooms. I shouldn’t have worried; mine are blooming like normal.





With everything so topsy-turvey around here (i.e. oil spill), it is so nice to have some things that are normal.

    I am guessing you wont be sending a bouquet of those lovely agapanthus blooms to BP’s head office!

    Oh I wish I could grow them here…they are beautiful. I’m glad you got a bit of light in the darkness that has plagued your area.
