Product Details

Product Details

Another long-blooming form of this sun-loving, drought-resistant group. The grayish leaves are a perfect backdrop for the large rich pink tubular flowers.

This genus of about 30 aromatic species is native to central and eastern Asia, Mexico, and the United States. Careful breeding and selection have given us newcomers that offer exceptional garden performance and a long season of bloom. In full sun and well-drained soil, they happily shrug off both summer heat and early frosts.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Bloomed all summer

Bonnie from Chicago

Despite lack of watering when I was away for a long stretch, these survived and bloomed all summer and into the fall.

Beautiful

Tina from Spring, Texas

Showed up in great shape. Planted it in a pot outside for 3 days before planting it in the ground and, once placed in the ground it has done nothing but grow. Already flowering 2 weeks after arriving.
I also have one I planted last year, that has spread this year. YAY!

not cold resistant over winter in MI?

papergardner from Ann Arbor, MI

This plant died this spring after 1 winter. I assume it is not hardy in Ann Arbor, MI.

Disappointed

Pale Green Thumb from Massachusetts

Pollinators like this plant. I planted it with other new perennials in a new raised bed. Its color was a dull, cool pink, and I only ordered it because the hummingbird mint I really wanted was sold out. It flopped a lot, perhaps the soil was too rich? Any way, I plan to move this one to be near some shasta daisies so it looks better. I need a more exciting, brighter shade of pink to complement where it is now. I hope it makes it through from the dreadful winter we just had.

Growing guide

Latin Name Pronunciation: uh-gas'tuh-kee  

Agastache is a genus of about 30 aromatic species native to central and eastern Asia, Mexico, and the United States: A. foeniculum is native to the United States; A. rugosa is from China and Japan. Careful breeding and selection have given us newcomers that offer exceptional garden performance and a long season of bloom. In full sun and well-drained soil, they happily shrug off summer heat and early frosts.

Light/Watering: Full sun. Some afternoon shade will protect the leaf color of yellow-foliaged Agastaches.

Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Average garden soil that drains well. Do not fertilize the first spring after planting; in subsequent years fertilize once in early spring with 10-10-10 or a layer of well-rotted compost. Acid to neutral pH.

Pests/Diseases: Few insect problems. Mildew can affect the leaves during dry summer weather. Deer generally do not bother Agastache, which is a member of the Mint family.

Companions: Other plants that prefer full sun and well-drained soil make good partners, for example: Milkweed (Asclepias), grasses (especially shorter varieties of Festuca), Yarrow (Achillea), Gaillardia, or Russian Sage (Perovskia). The bushier varieties of Agastache hold their own against most other perennials in a sunny border.

Dividing/Transplanting: Divide in spring if plant has outgrown its space; plant crown at soil level.

Calendar of Care - Agastache

Early Spring: Gradually remove any winter cover. Cut back old stems; large clumps may be divided. Apply one application of balanced 10-10-10 fertilizer or a 1–2″ layer of well-rotted compost (keep at least several inches away from the plant's crown).

End-of-Season Care: Cut stems back half way to protect the plants from damage by winter winds.
