Apart from one occasion many years ago, I am new to actually growing Agapanthus.  I wasn't even aware that there were Evergreen and Deciduous types.

My neighbour gave me a couple of clumps last lot I potted into a container and they produced a healthy bunch of leaves.  The other lot were just left in a compost bag and flowered away quite happily.  Both just left out in the garden last winter.  I'm afraid I just assumed that all of them would lose their leaves in a cold winter and possibly retain some in the mildest weather....much like any other bulbous plant.

What variety of Agapanthus is truly evergreen and what variety is classed as deciduous?

Thanks in advance
