Arnold:  I don't know about that cultivar, but I do know have 
experience with some agapanthus that I have growing; they didn't 
(don't) mind tearing and hacking at all...that's the only way I 
increase and spread them.  Except for a giant white that I grow, the 
others seem to be a tangled mass of roots and bulb/cormlets.
