Epsom salts has no effect on flower color. And with a few, very limited exceptions, flower color is not influenced by soil chemistry or amendments. Unless the amendment is food color :-)

RE: Agapanthus and Epsom Salt

Thanks for the information. I guess I'll just enjoy them as they are. Last year was the first year I had flowers and it looks like this year I'll have even more. I won't fool with mother nature!
