RE: Tony Avent in NYTimes

Agapanthus doesn't bloom here like it does nearer the coast either. Mine all
get frozen to the ground each winter, probably sets them back some.  I've
seen some advertised lately as being "hardy"; one day I might try some
different varieties. So many plants, so little time.

Agapanthus is big here, too, Cyndi, but it doesn't bloom anywhere near 
as much as it does in California. Must be that the Lily of the Nile 
doesn't care for humidity or warm nights or Florida Kultchur. ;)
