Agapanthus africanus

Agapanthus africanus (L.) Hoffmanns. is an evergreen plant with strap-shaped leaves found on rocky sandstone slopes, mostly montane in areas from the Cape Peninsula to Swellendam. It has navy blue flowers and rarely blooms in the wild unless there is a fire. Plants grown in cultivation in the United States under this name are usually hybrids or forms of Agapanthus praecox. Stamens are shorter than the tepals. Photos from Cameron McMaster of wild plants growing near Napier in the Overberg.
