Acapulco orange not comparable to other Agastache
About Me Master Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Agastache Acapulco Orange:
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Very hardy in the Chihuahua desert
from Las Cruces, NM
About Me Avid Gardener
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
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
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.
