The Agapanthus plant is wonderfully prolific in New Zealand and particularly around here. There were rumours earlier this year that its sale in New Zealand had been banned because it was becomming a pest but this proved to be just a rumour. The drive is lined with Agapanthus and Lavendar and there are also Jacoranda trees. Apart from being beautiful they bind the ground. This is important around the Cottage where the land was excavated and Wendy has planted lots of Agapanthus to help stabilise the land.

Agapanthus - native to southern Africa - are strong growing perennials, popular for their fine foliage and long lasting flowers. They will grow almost anywhere, whether in deep shade or full sun.
