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 Coronado® Red:

    I use this plant in my raised beds. It's very attractive as well as hardy. Once established, it stands up to hot, dry, Kansas summer weather with little care. Love to brush up against it when working in my beds. It emits such a wonderful fragrance. Agastache Rupestris is my all time favorite, but this is a close second.

        This wintered over just fine - blooming it's head off already! Recommend trimming post bloom (any non-seed producing stems) to encourage re-bloom (As of 6/4/15).

          Comments about High Country Gardens Agastache Coronado® Red:

          Fragrant foliage, long bloom season, can be sheared to encourage a second flush of blooms. More compact than other Agastaches. Only drawback is the color. Blooms tend to be a dull orange more than red. Ideal for hummingbird gardens.

          Q & A

          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).
