Details

48-60" tall x 24" wide. Of all the hummingbird mints varieties High Country Gardens has released (and they are our specialty), this is our finest introduction. This stately hybrid between Agastache cana and Agastache barberi will be the centerpiece of any planting with its huge spikes of deep rose-pink flowers, raspberry-red calyxes and sweetly scented foliage. Flowering begins in mid-summer and continues for months, the spikes elongate up to a foot or more in length and intensifying in color with each passing week. "Unlike any other Agastache I've grown, Ava's calyxes retain their intense coloration keeping the plant beautiful until hard frost," said chief horticulturist David Salman. Or like fine dark-flowered Lavender, it can be picked and dried to make a fragrant everlasting flower. This plant takes two to three growing seasons to reach mature size and will live for many years when happy. Plant in enriched, well-drained garden soil. Fertilize annually in mid-fall with Yum Yum Mix and leave the stems standing through winter. Cut back entire plant back to 3” in mid-spring (not in the fall) (cutting propagated)

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.

I planted the Agastache Ava in a small, native, xeric garden that faces east but is sheltered/shaded slightly on both north and south. It gets the full morning of direct sun. We live in the high desert (11" of precip/year) and I have only watered it regular (by hand) for the first couple of months after planting. Since then, it's just been nature watering it.
It grew MUCH BIGGER than I had imagined, so once again, my garden is crowded. I always seem to underestimate how big things will get. Overall, it's provided luxurious flowers spires that the bees and humingbirds love. Highly recommend.

I garden a lot and wanted Agastache Ava for several years. It was sold out one year when I was ready to purchase it so I waited until last year. I was finally able to order it along with Indian Grass 'Llano'. I planted the Indian Grass and Agastache together and all performed beautifully. Ava agastache was gorgeous and had a long bloom time. The grass made it through the Wisconsain zone 5 winter just fine but all 3 Agastache Ava died. Not one sign of life from any of them this Spring. It's May 19th and still nothing, so maybe zone 5 is a stretch? If a single plant had died I wouldn't think too much of it but all 3 is hard to figure out after they performed so beautifully otherwise.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Agastache Ava:

    We had been trying for several years to grow an agasthache, but they kept not making it through our wet winters. I had resigned myself to growing them a an annual. Last summer I decided to try again, but this time I planted them on a hill. I don't know if Ava was better than the other cultivars we tried, or we planted it early so it could get well established before winter, or if the hill did the trick, but this agastache Ava is off the charts! We love our crocosmia which is a hummingbird lure, but our new slogan is "come for the crocosmia, but stay for the agastache."

          I purchased three of these Agastache hybrids for a sunny spot in my zone 10 garden. The plants that arrived in the fall were tiny but healthy. I have extremely poor, clay soil but now that we made it through the winter and it is mid-spring, all three plants are thriving and are easily five times the size they were when I planted them. It's too early for blooms yet but I am very pleased with how well they are doing.

            I have this beauty by my patio so I can enjoy the hummingbirds and bees which consider it an "all you can eat" buffet.
            What a great plant, especially here in southern Delaware when most plants are looking a little worse for wear, this plant is still looking great.

              Comments about High Country Gardens Agastache Ava:

              I held these plants after receiving (great packing, by the way) a little too long in my utility room, and then planted them in a bed that I have not been able to get anything to grow successfully. It is a bed next to the house on a south brick wall. One reason may be the caliche I have been fighting around the foundation when the house was built. The Ava and Purple Haze did really well in this bed during the summer. By fall, I could tell they had a good start and were growing well. We have had 12 inches of snow this winter so far, and temps have gotten into the teens. They are still green at the base. I am looking forward to lush growth this spring! Successes like this will insure that I buy from HCG again!!

                Agastache 'Ava' grows equally well in Santa Fe and Puget Sound, WA. Blooms all summer into fall and attracts numerous hummingbirds. I have planted it in a perennial border along a wall and near a patio.

                        We have an area in our landscape that's too extreme for most plants. The plants we purchased from High Country have always been the hardiest plants for tough spaces. Out of the box they look tiny, be sure to give them the space required in the instructions. They will grow to fill it in a short time.

                              I have purchased many agastaches from HCG and this is probably my favorite. With the heavy clay soil and wet winters in middle Tennessee I have found that it is best to plant in large containers which I can move to protected areas for the winter.
                              In the spring I place them near my hummingbird feeders and when they start blooming in mid summer I just sit back and enjoy the show! Well worth the wait!

                                This Ava was a replacement plant for one that did not survive the winter previously. It arrived healthy and by the fall it had reached 2.5 ft,

                                  Love Ava Hummingbird mint and so do my hummingbird visitors as well as butterflies. The only two cons which are more related to my Northeast location: long spikes can break off at base, and after 3 winters, the plant normally does not come back. It is light, airy and adds a whimsical look to my gardens.

                                    Although I have other agastache so, I've wanted Ava for a long time. The plant doubled in size during its first season, and promises to become a showcase in my front garden.

                                      I out the beautiful plant in an empty corner of what I call my Butterfly garden. I needed something there, but did not know what. This plant is perfect. Not only is it wispy, fragrant and beautiful. The butterflies and hummers love it. It has tripled in size since the spring. We have had several days of freezing weather and even a little snow in Ohio so far this year...and it is still blooming and doing well.

                                                Have tried Ava for several years. It does not live through the Winter here in Zone 4. What a disappointment as I think it would be a wonderful addition to my Xeric landscape.

                                                Did great in the garden and on a farmers porch in a pot. Hummingbirds were all over it even with people sitting near. Had one that did not come back after a tough winter.

                                                  I have these flowers at the front of my house on a busy street and often get compliments on them and asked what they are.

                                                      I garden a lot and wanted Agastache Ava for several years. It was sold out one year when I was ready to purchase it so I waited until last year. I was finally able to order it along with Indian Grass 'Llano'. I planted the Indian Grass and Agastache together and all performed beautifully. Ava agastache was gorgeous and had a long bloom time. The grass made it through the Wisconsain zone 5 winter just fine but all 3 Agastache Ava died. Not one sign of life from any of them this Spring. It's May 19th and still nothing, so maybe zone 5 is a stretch? If a single plant had died I wouldn't think too much of it but all 3 is hard to figure out after they performed so beautifully otherwise.

                                                      I planted 2 in front of a bunch of flowering vines on trellises. They grew very well last year. So much so that I had to stake them so they wouldn't get broken by the wind. I think they'll come back bushier this year. I hope they bring more hummingbirds.

                                                      I have two of these planted in front of some climbing vines (honeysuckle, trumpet, clematis) on trellises. They both grew well last year for their first season. They were getting so tall that I staked them a bit so that the wind wouldn't damage them. They should be a bit bushier this year. And I hope to see more hummingbirds too!

                                                      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).
