Love ‘em or hate ‘em Agapanthus are a dominant flower along the Surf Coast at this time of year. However, the Surf Coast environment at Anglesea and Aireys Inlet is a unique indigenous one, sensitive to invasion from some Australian plants, not indigenous to the area, and foreign plants.
So the question is, how do we manage Agapanthus? Our first action is to stop its further spread by removing the flower heads before they go to seed and putting them in your green FOGO bin.
If you wish to make a greater contribution to the environment remove the whole plant by digging up and disposing of it in the bin too.
Roots of Agapanthus are not accepted as green waste at the Anglesea Transfer Station because its green waste is not fully sterilised as the FOGO bin material is.
