Agapanthus comptonii ssp. longitubus
9th July 2011
A small growing species, the taxonomy of the species of Agapanthus is rather confusing (all the species
look more or less the same) and depends who you choose to use as an authority.
Agapanthus comptonii ssp longitubus comes from the western Cape region. It is now generally accepted as a synonym
of Agapanthus praecox ssp minimus and I would change the name here, but I am not entirely convinced that
this is the real thing!
