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.

Comments about High Country Gardens Agastache Acapulco Salmon & Pink:
A few years ago I picked up some Salmon and Pink Agastache at a local big box store. It was beautiful and hummingbirds loved it. It was honestly one of the favorite plants in my garden but I hadn't seen it locally again so I ordered six of them here. The plants I received have done reasonably well in their first year, but are nowhere close to the same shade and intensity as either the big box purchase or the pictures on this site.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Part of a "test bed" of Agastache I planted last spring to see if, and how well, Zone 5 plants would do in a south-facing bed in Minneapolis – colder and wetter than Santa Fe, and at least officially, Zone 4. After a slow start, which I expected, the plant did very well through the summer, blooming profusely and attracting plenty of pollinators. Writing this in late January, it remains to be seen whether the plant will survive the winter, so it's too early for a long-term judgment.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

this was an extreme drought year with very limited opportunities to water. It was a less than impressive plant but this I attribute this to the drought, not to the plant. Let me wait until after this coming summer, provided it survives the winter where this mornings temp was 2 degrees F, with a wind chill factor I seem to have forgotten (or repressed).
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.
