Origins
A member of the Amaryllidaceae family, the agapanthus derives its name from the Greek words for "love" and "flower." Agapanthus orientalis and Agapanthus africanus, 2 of about 9 species in this group of South African herbs, and the varieties used most often by florists, have many lovable characteristics. Large, round heads covered with blue or white tubular flowers top each tall, elegant agapanthus stem.
