Is agapanthus a type of allium?
Alliums are part of the large Amaryllidaceae family and belong in the Alliodeae subfamily. This family includes Amaryllis, daffodils, agapanthus, and snowdrops.
What can you not plant with alliums?
The presence of the allium family plants can harm beans and peas as they can stunt their growth. There is a chemical incompatibility that keeps peas, fava beans, pole beans, bush beans, lentils, or other legumes from having a stable and beneficial relationship.
What plants pair well with agapanthus?
Plant a tall bush or blooming climber, like wisteria, that pulls the eye upward. Or you might plant dwarf agapanthus with hydrangea, and then add spiky birds of paradise, wild purple coneflowers, or Shasta daisies. Low-growing alyssum or dianthus look magical along the border.
