This plant is called agapanthus, or more commonly African lily. There are white forms too and various sizes, some evergreen and some deciduous.

The one in the picture looks to be quite a large form perhaps a variety called ‘Blue Giant’. Agapanthus is easy to find in most garden centres, but the variety might be more tricky to get.
