Good day Jim,

In the early 90's, I successfully grew some clumps of 'Headbourne Hybrids'
near Boise, ID in a zone 5b/6a.  I've now heard rumors that USDA has rolled
up this area to a 7a.  How soon they forget the 3b winter of 90 - 91 where
it hit -32 and then stayed sub-zero for another month...
Now that I'm in the Bay Area, where Agapanthus is regarded as a weed, I'm
still planting it when and wherever I can, much to the chagrin of others.
If the RHS's The Garden can have it as their cover plant, it is certainly
worth having....

enjoying the blooms on a newly planted 'Storm Cloud'
