Product Description

Agastache is an upright, bushy hardy perennial with a long flowering season that blooms in spikes that rise from the foliage on stiff triangular stems. The aromatic foliage is mid-green and serrated with heavy veining, resembling catmint. Agastache is a member of the mint family, and the leaves can be used to make tea.

Although many varieties of Agastache flower in shades of blue and lavender, ĎApadana Orangeí bears clusters of golden orange tubular florets that completely cover the top 10cm its flower spires and open from the top downwards between May and September. Recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators', they are a favourite with butterflies and bees and other beneficial insects, and they make great cut flowers too!

Preferring dry conditions, Agastache loves to grow in full sun and poor, well drained soil thatís moderately fertile, so itís happy growing in dry conditions such as gravel gardens and coastal locations. It looks fantastic in a patio pot, perfect if you have heavy, rich soil. It is also very hardy and requires no additional feeding.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant. Reaching a height of 50cm (20in) and spread of 35cm (14in).

  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out some of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot then refill the hole with the earth removed.
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well before adding a mulch around the base of the plant.
  • Trim in late autumn when there is no active growth and remove flowered stems in spring.
