I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. We are transitioning to a new Q&A system and your question was unfortunately lost in the transition. I have discovered it now and hope this reply is not too late to be of help.

Well the agapanthus could be struggling with soggy soil which it detests. It may also be that the some weed and feed fertilizer used on the turf nearby got onto it or washed down into the root zone. Dig down a few inches and feel the soil to see if it is very wet or just right. Water to keep it just moist. Fertilize with a soluble plant food such as Miracle Gro weekly for a while following label instructions. Hopefully they'll pull out of this and resume normal growth.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
