African Lily

Agapanthus africanus

Has spectacularly large blue flowers

One of the wonderful after affects of fire on the South African Fynbos, is the sudden appearance of masses of mainly blue wild flowers of the African lily.

Pollinated by wind, bees and sunbirds, they provide a tasty meal for baboons.
