Planting Guides

Tips for growing Agastache

Agastache are sun loving plants with aromatic foliage and flowers. They bloom from mid-summer into early fall and are resistant to rabbits and deer.

Agastache need lean, well-drained soils, prefer gravel mulches, and appreciate deep but infrequent watering after their second growing season

  1. Provide a fast draining soil that's naturally low in fertility, Don't plant into clay soils.
  2. Plant in full hot sun.
  3. Just a few handfuls of compost in the planting hole is enough. Don't plant into a rich, highly amended soil..
  4. Fertilize the Agastache just once in fall with Yum Yum Mix and Planters II.
  5. New transplants need regular irrigation their first growing season to establish themselves. Watering can be reduced greatly during the second growing season when the plants have matured.

To improve winter-hardiness, and encourage re-seeding, leave the stems intact over the winter. In mid-spring, remove old stems just above the new foliage, about 4 or 5 inches above ground level.

If your conditions don't lend themselves to growing Agastache in your garden, they do well planted in containers.

Comments about High Country Gardens Agastache Acapulco Orange:

This is one of my favorite plants. Hummingbirds love it. It is a must have for me! The problem is wet winters in the mid-atlantic. This plant requires a microclimate. It must not stay wet in the winter. Not in the spring either for that matter. And you must not cut it back in the fall. I have a patch strategically placed on the edge of a high evergreen row. So it gets tons of sun in the summer but is protected from too much rain or snow.

      This plant came perfectly packaged and in very good shape. It grew quickly and bloomed forever this summer! It has a very interesting color combination that looks great next to plants that bloom orange, pink or blue.

        Comments about High Country Gardens Agastache Acapulco Orange:

        The other reviews for this plant surprised me enough to decide to write my own. I love this plant, and so do the hummingbirds. I decided to plant it in a pot and it is flourishing. It is at least 3 feet tall, the flowers are gorgeous and long-lasting, and it has a wonderful smell. I can't vouch for its hardiness yet, but will report in next spring. I may leave it in the pot and let it over winter in the garage this year. Come next spring, I plan to buy several more.

        I only used this plant for 1 year. In comparison to rupestris, this is a much smaller plant and far less adaptable to variations in sunlight and water.

        Does very well in the desert and quite drought tolerant although it won't turn up its nose at a little extra water. This and Agastache Rupestris do best in my yard among the Agastache plants I have tried. Cana died after a year and NeoMexicana didn't last 3 months.

        Q & A

        Suggested Companion Plants:

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
