Blue or Purple

Whether this Agapanthus flower is blue or purple, I think it is perfect.

Actually, I think it is perfectly gorgeous, and I’m about to have two standing tall and proud and the perfect addition to my front garden.

I still have no idea what variety of Agapanthus this particular one is, but I’m hoping that when it fully opens, I will be able to make that decision.  Thankfully there are hundreds of photos online I can use for a comparison, but I do need to decide what this colour is.  What colour do you think it is?

With all the flowers of the inflorescence still hidden inside the bracts, they certainly look purple, and for sure the photos I took with my iPhone (see What a Stunner) show a deeply saturated royal colour.  These shots I took with my Nikon this morning look slightly washed out by comparison.  Almost not true.

(I didn’t use any special setting, just pointed, then clicked.)

I love this

But I do have to admit that, although the colour in these photos looks blue, to my naked eye the flower looks purple.  I think I need to play with the setting on my camera and see if I can capture the colour correctly.

My other varieties, a (true blue of some sort) and a white, are in full bloom, but I’ve also still got plenty of young plants just starting to open.

I certainly love seeing all the Agapanthus in my garden and haven’t the heart to cut them and put them in a vase.

    1. I’m guessing it’s a bit cooler (?) in you corner of Australia, although, I still have quite a few that haven’t opened. 😁

      1. HI Clare, we’ve had a few warm days recently, a couple in the mid 30s last week so I don’t think it will be long before the buds open. I like the darker Aggies and bought some “Black Panthers” but they didn’t survive.

        1. It’s been that hot here too. Must hunt up a Black Panther. I saw a photo the other day and got a (little) glint in my eye 😁

    1. I have in the past but just can’t seem to do it this year. Maybe I’ll cut some of the young ones – maybe I won’t. Honestly, I haven’t decided just yet.
