pansy's are great perennials, they are one of my favourites because they come in so many colours, and they are darn hard to kill. They are good for somewhere with a bit of shade, because they get stressed if it too hot. I've got a beautiful false sunflower growing this year - if there are any that are native to your area they are very easy to maintain as well.
loopyloo, Perennial gardens are my favorite...
I agree, its infuriating when you get one of those stubborn plants, that just won't be divided...
The reason why your Agapanthus is not currently showing any signs of flower buds, is possibly because, there any many varieties of Agapanthus and they all flower at different times, also Agapanthus is one of those perennials that may not flower in their first year of planting. ...Although the frond like plant, may look as though its part of the Agapanthus, it is definitely not. I think you have a bonus plant...
...Are those flower buds, I can see on the tips of the stems? Hope so, as flowers would make identification much easier.
Hi ChanellG, agree, think it may well be the best option, get all the dividing done this year and let the plants get established over the winter and hopefully you will be rewarded with a good display next year, anytime from late April onwards.
One of the plants finally put up flowers this year. The one I didn't divide that has the "invader" in it hasn't shown any signs of flowering though. My mom put all hers in the ground and even she only got one flower head. Yet when we ride around town we see other agapanthas plants with multiple flower heads. (sigh) My mini gladiola haven't yet bloomed this year either.
