A perennial star with masses of upright stems of glowing orange and apricot florets. Agastache aurantiaca is heat, cold and dry tolerant. The flowers begin Dec/Jan and keep on blooming until frost. Friendly pollinators like bees and butterflies as well as birds will flock to this stunning plant. A dazzler for a sunny position.
Agastache look fantastic in dry beds, cottage gardens, rock gardens and containers.
Their fragrant, silver green leaves smell like a blend of aniseed and lemon - they are even edible and can be used in salads or teas, they are members of the mint family (Lamiaceae). Their foliage is wonderful planted along paths where you can brush up against them, or you could pick a sprig or two and bring indoors to enjoy in a vase. The flowers are also edible, and will colour a salad beautifully.
Tolerant of poor soils, so long as they are well drained, Agastache are ideal for providing long lasting colour as a dry garden plant. Agastache plants prefer a full sun to light shade position, they need water to establish (regularly for around four weeks), then only if rainfall is low, however the flowering season will likely last a little longer if the plants don’t dry out completely.
We recommend dead heading your Agastache flowers regularly during the season to encourage more blooms. It is a good idea to cut your Agastache plants back hard in winter/early spring to maintain a healthy bush. You can grow Agastache in containers, you will just need to water them more regularly.
Agastache is also known as 'Hummingbird Mint' or ‘Giant Hyssop’, and are native to south western U.S.A.
