There is a list of cultivars in this article and information about how to look after these plants
I have a photo from 2010 of an agapanthus plant which grew very near our home but I have not seen it since

No garden but two balconies, one facing south and the other north.
Most of my plants are succulents which need little care

 THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN NUMBER 2 AUTUMN 1995
KANKERBOS
By Tom Wellsted

 Kankerbos, Cancer bush, Sutherlandia frutescens.

To quote from this article
‘Fortunately, this shrub has not suffered from a mass of botanical name changes ‘

I don’t know which year this plant underwent a name change but it is now known as Lessertia frutescens.

There is a drawing of this plant by Derek Toms in THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN number 65, July 2011 which I was very glad to find as there doesn’t seem to be a photo of it anywhere on THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN SOCIETY site
