Agastache Purple Haze
Purple Haze Hyssop
DetailsWatching the performance of this new hybrid Hyssop, chief horticulturist David Salman has been very impressed with Purple Haze's summer-long display of long, thin flower spikes covered with dark blue-violet flowers. Very popular with the bees and butterflies. It is also more moisture tolerant, making it a good choice in moister climates.

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
- Provide a fast draining soil that's naturally low in fertility, Don't plant into clay soils.
- Plant in full hot sun.
- Just a few handfuls of compost in the planting hole is enough. Don't plant into a rich, highly amended soil..
- Fertilize the Agastache just once in fall with Yum Yum Mix and Planters II.
- 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.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
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.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
