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.

Draws in the hummingbirds and butterflies...
By Duane P.
from Plano, TX
About Me Getting Started
Haven't tried planting it in the ground as we have clay soil so I opted to try planting it in a 5 gallon garden planter. This is the end of the plant's second season so the roots are well established. In this hot Texas weather I water it well every 2 or 3 days and it has lots of blooms. I have the planter positioned in full sun in a garden island offset and mid-yard. I also have 3 other varieties: Agastache rupestris, Furman's Red Texas Sage and Agastache Acapulco Salmon & Pink... all in 5 gallon garden planters.
I would purchase this again. Love the wildlife.

Despite my neighbor who says it stinks (he is an annual plant gardener), the plant does have a bit pungent minty sent.

must have for hummingbirds
By gardener girl
from Perry Hall, Maryland
This is one of my favorite plants. Hummingbirds love it. It is a must have for me! The problem is wet winters in the mid-atlantic. This plant requires a microclimate. It must not stay wet in the winter. Not in the spring either for that matter. And you must not cut it back in the fall. I have a patch strategically placed on the edge of a high evergreen row. So it gets tons of sun in the summer but is protected from too much rain or snow.
from Hughesville, PA
I really hope this plant comes back in the spring! I really like it and want to plant more of it for the pollinators.

This plant came perfectly packaged and in very good shape. It grew quickly and bloomed forever this summer! It has a very interesting color combination that looks great next to plants that bloom orange, pink or blue.

Flourishing in Atascadero, California
from Atascadero, California
The other reviews for this plant surprised me enough to decide to write my own. I love this plant, and so do the hummingbirds. I decided to plant it in a pot and it is flourishing. It is at least 3 feet tall, the flowers are gorgeous and long-lasting, and it has a wonderful smell. I can't vouch for its hardiness yet, but will report in next spring. I may leave it in the pot and let it over winter in the garage this year. Come next spring, I plan to buy several more.

Acapulco orange not comparable to other Agastache
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
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.
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.
