    I planted these four years ago and they never flowered. Last year I moved them and bingo I got flowers. The only problem is I have lost the label. Can you name the plant please. Thank you.

    It looks like agapanthus.

    I agree with Odif.

    Edited my post to say - their common name is Lily of the Nile if that helps.

    Brilliant all of you for your comments. Now I remember it is a African Lilly. Do they multiply at all ?. Thank you.

    They do clump up quite quickly and the clumps are dead easy to split up. I have also grown a lot from seed. Not hard, collect when ripe, sow fresh, don't prick out too soon, feed heavily and they flower in about three years.
