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.

Comments about High Country Gardens Agastache Acapulco Orange:

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.

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.
