Details
24" tall x 18" wide (cutting propagated). An exciting new form of Agastache cana that appeared as a single outstanding plant in a group of garden plants grown from habitat collected seed. 'Rosita' has been the subject of much comment in our Santa Fe display gardens because of its profusion of dense, deep rose-pink flower spikes and extremely bushy semi-dwarf growth habit.

Earlier blooming than regular Agastache cana plants, 'Rosita's spikes have about 50% more flowers per spike than is normal; the effect is striking and noticeable from a great distance. Plant in well-drained garden soils, and water deeply but infrequently once established.

        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.
