This is the first year I have planted Agastache Rose Mint. I bought the seeds through Park but would have liked to get a larger set of seeds. As it stands I was only able to get two plants into adulthood with the seeds. The plant is really striking and I'm amazed at how it always looks great. The plant seems not to have many pests. I will probably transfer this plant to a pot at the end of the season and carry it over in the winter indoors. Started the plant in January and now almost in June, is developing flowers.
