Held aloft lush, grass-like leaves on long, stiff, dark scapes, the large blooms attract bees, butterflies, and makes excellent cut flowers for floral display. An Agapanthus variety, commonly called lily of the Nile, 'Valencia' is a rhizomatous plant with a mounding habit of beautiful basal leaves, which keeps the plant attractive even when not in bloom.
