Agapanthus inapertus or commonly the drooping agapanthus usually has blue flowers, but on some plants the flowers may be white or violet. The flowers are tubular and pendulous, growing in dense umbel-shaped clusters on peduncles of well over 1 m.
The five subspecies of the drooping agapanthus all occur in Mpumalanga and Limpopo. Subsp. intermedius also occurs in KwaZulu-Natal, while subsp. inapertus may reach the northerly part of that province as well.
Some of the subspecies are among the well-known garden plants of this genus. None of the subspecies is considered to be threatened in its habitat early in the twenty first century (Pooley, 1998; http://redlist.sanbi.org).
