Does anyone have experience with Agapanthus, Lily of the Nile, in zone 7? I bought a couple of plants this Spring and I would like to transplant to the ground this fall. One pot has several plants growing in it and I think they could be divided when and if I transplant them. I bought one at a local nursery and I was told they would do well here in central VA but I would like to hear from others with experience on these lovely plants.

Im on the 8/9 border and when we have a freeze they all turn mushy but come back nicely in spring.

I started with 5 tiny 3 leafed plants 3 1/2 years ago, about two years ago I divided them into two groups and they've gotten so crowded I dig them up and give them away constantly.

After I pry up a clump they are hard to separate so I just use a hand saw.

What a beautiful garden! Thanks for the picture and the info. I'm going to put them in the ground in the fall and hopefully they will return in the Spring.
