Agastache aurantiaca Apricot Sunrise

June–September.

Agastache aurantiaca Apricot Sunrise

Agastache

Lovers of heat, these tough and drought resistant Mint family relatives guarantee terminal spikes adorned with brightly colored, tubular flowers just about all summer long. Agastaches are easily grown in well drained soils, and will bloom more profusely, over an even longer period of time, if the flowering stems are cut back in midseason.

This easy-to-grow, drought tolerant perennial was hybridized by Richard Dufresne of Greensboro, North Carolina. With sinuous stems tinged a dusty grape, wine-purple calyxes, deep orange buds that fade slightly as they open, and triangular green leaves with a minty aroma and silvery undersides, the stunning shades of an evening sky will color your garden all day long. Plant with Mediterraneans or Cephalaria gigantea.

Size: 2-1/2' high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.

Customer Comment:

“Surfing the web for a special plant, I chanced on Digging Dog Nursery. I thought that any nursery that could create an Egyptian Gothic out of Anubis must have some pretty cool things going for it. I was right, and my first order was a pleasure. Well packed, healthy plants and extremely appealing people on the other side of the screen.”
