Agapanthus orientalis 'Queen Mum' is a tough, herbaceous perennial plant with full bi-coloured flowers heads of blue and white. The foliage is glossy green, and the plant and flower size are large for agapanthus. It likes a sunny position, but will grow in shade, though this will diminish the flowering. Tolerates frost, drought and humidity, and does well on a wide range of soils. Rarely troubled by pests or disease, so is good for low maintenance gardens.
