I grow (and have grown) many different Agastaches and this one, 'Shades of Orange' is one of my very favorites! The different shades of the orange flowers makes a beautiful, if not colorful Agastache plant! Of course, the Hummingbirds love it too!

I got this one from High Country Gardens, which it introduced. It is also the place I get many Agastaches and they tell about how to grow Agastaches.

The important thing about growing Agastaches is to wait until mid Spring when new green growth appears, before cutting any old stems to insure hardiness. I've learned the hard way to even wait longer than that, because of late Spring freezes can and do occur.
