blue petals



Please name this flower!! (see the update below!!) it decorates a central street where I live, it's beautiful to see the blue carpet next to the busy street.

Thankful Update: thanks to the wonderful quilly (I am forever grateful for her botanic help all the time!) I will now remember it is an Agapanthus


Thanks, Thom!!

  1. Agapanthus! What do I win as my prize?

    I had to ask Amoeba about this one, but not because I didn't know it, because I didn't remember it correctly (Aganthus) and couldn't look it up online to check my facts (because they were wrong!) before I commented.

  23. I love it when we can post a flower that we do not know and our blogging friends always come through with an answer. That flower is beautiful and I didn't know what it was either.
