Agapanthus 'Valencia' Lily of the Nile is a tender perennial that blooms midsummer in dense, 6-inch, rounded clusters of funnel-shaped sky-blue flowers with darker purple veins. Held aloft lush, grass-like leaves on long, stiff, dark scapes, the large blooms attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds and make 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. Although lily of the Nile is shown to best effect when massed or grouped, making a lovely addition to beds and borders, it also makes a gorgeous specimen or container plant.
'Valencia' grows best in sunny locations with consistently moist, well-draining soil. The plant benefits from moderate fertilization during spring and summer. It is deer resistant and heat tolerant if provided afternoon shade.
