Agapanthus ( /ˌæɡəˈpænθəs/)1 is the only genus in the subfamily Agapanthoideae of the flowering plant family Amaryllidaceae.2 The family is in the monocot order Asparagales.
Agapanthus is commonly known as “Lily of the Nile” (‘African lily’ in the UK); but it is not a lily and all of the species are native to South Africa, from the Cape of Good Hope to the Limpopo River.3
Species boundaries are not clear in the genus, and in spite of having been intensively studied, the number of species recognized by different authorities varies from 6 to 10. The type species for the genus is Agapanthus africanus.4 A great many hybrids and cultivars have been produced and they are cultivated throughout warm areas of the world. 5 Most of these were described in a book published in 2004. 6
