Foxgloves. Definitely not African Lily. Not sure how it got the wrong name, but don't know how to change it 🙈

It's already linked to your other pics of agapanthus now, so if you change encyclopedia link, it'll change the link on them too... Gtags won't let you separate photos once uploaded, so the only way to label it properly now is to delete this image, and upload again under foxglove 😕 @jeatacake @jaynehynesburton

Isn't this gorgeous! I have dreams of one spot in my woodland being filled with these. Thanks to great gardeners like you and your generous tips I may have some foxglove to plant out there for next spring. I'm so stoked Jeff 🙌🙏😁 It won't look like yours but I'll keep pecking at it 😉😘

Thank you too @jaynehynesburton & @Mikekally Got it! Still don't know though how it became named as Agapanthus in the first place! 🤔

Oh Laura you are so kind 💕😘 In all honesty, these are all self-seeders & well suited to their native climate of course here, but should do well there too, especially in cool, moist & mostly shaded spots 👍 @columbiariver
