Imagine a clear sky with a line of low clouds on the horizon, tinted shades of orange, pink and lavender by the rising sun and you have the color of 'Desert Sunrise' flowers. A hybrid I discovered in my garden a few years back, 'Desert Sunrise®' is a cross between the two best southwestern species of the genus: Agastache rupestris and Agastache cana. This new perennial introduction is a sturdy, vigorous grower that blooms non-stop from mid-summer through fall. The flower spikes are quite large and both the foliage and flowers are delightfully fragrant. Agastache 'Desert Sunrise®' is xeric like Agastache rupestris, but like Agastache cana adapts well to regular garden conditions with better soils and more plentiful water. Best of all, 'Desert Sunrise®' is a rich nectar source that is very popular with hummingbirds! Not recommended for Fall planting in zones 5-6. (cutting propagated)
