In honorary tribute of the late Black Panther (2018) leading actor, Chadwick Boseman (1976-2020), it was necessary to highlight a flower similar to the Black Panther's fictional flower, Vibranium with a non-fictional flower, Agapanthus, otherwise referred to as African Lily. With striking similar features of tubular purple petals, historic African roots, and fire-resistant properties, the flower, Agapanthus, can provide those Black Panther fans out there feeling hopeful for a possible resurfacing of vibranium flowers! Check out the interesting sources of origin and benefits of the stunningly beautiful Agapanthus flower.
Agapanthus (Agapanthus praecox) represents love letters, magical love, my love has not faded, never-fading love. - Flowerpaedia (2018) Authored by Cheralyn Darcey
Agapanthus, an African native flower, is also referred to as the African Lily or the Lily of the Nile, is sourced from the perennial herbaceous plant of the Amaryllis family. The flowers have characters of funnel-shaped, featuring colors of blue, purple, or white. The leaves are often dark green with elongated stems.
Although this plant is not fire retardant, this plants' powers has natural properties to slow the fire's progress and recovers quickly post-fire. The reason for this special power is due to the thickened roots is bonded throughout the soil, further reducing erosion.

With all of the benefits of the clover, it is no wonder as to why the Irish have culturally and historically recognized this plant for its luck! Although the appearance is green, leafy, and can be often found throughout grassy lawns, the clover is still categorized as a flower.
