    Do they repeat flower or do they just send up the flowers for the season do you know?

    the flowers don't technically "repeat" but they're there for a long time.

    Most of my friends believe they thrive on neglect and consequently get very few flowers. Saw an item on GW a few years with the National Collection holder of Agapanthus. He recommended water regularly and weekly all purpose feed during the growing season. This seems to work well. We usually get a good show of flowers.
