Blue Agapanthus “Lily of the Nile”
Blue Agapanthus, commonly known as “lily of the Nile”, are not lilies at all but, yes they are native to Africa. Agapanthus is an easy-going, drought and heat-hardy summer flower. They are cultivated throughout many warm areas of the world, and can be spotted all throughout Northern California, especially along the roadways and that is why I refer to them as “freeway flowers”.
Folklore says that a person’s wish is granted if a ladybug lands on them. Also, tradition says that if you capture a ladybug; make a wish, and then "blow it away" back home your wish will come true. Somewhere in all my flower paintings you will find your ladybug.
