Early November rain preceded the two-week heatwave, then there was more heavy rain. No wonder the new agapanthus shoots are confused. Several drooped mid-shoot (heatwave) and then shot up again (rain).
They are out there right now in the December breeze waving their misshapen spikes like cursive 'n's.
The droop point on several spikes has borne a floweret. I'll keep an eye on them.
They are obviously paying close attention to the weather following last year's heat - the first time I recall agapanthus being severely scorched.
