Planted mine in the spring of 2006 (from a three inch pot). Last fall (2008) it was about 4 1/2 feet tall and drawing both bees and hummingbirds to my yard like crazy. The orange/purple flowers look stellar against the silver/gray folage, and it smells awesome!

This plant is fantastic!!! I planted about four of them all together from High Country Gardens. They bloom like clockwork and, with a little help from plant stakes for support, are beautiful all late spring, summer and early fall. They are dormant right now. However, the flowers supplement the hummingbird feeders I have for about half of the year. They smell terrific, too. Besides all this, there are no volunteer seedlings from these plants which is a definite plus.

Very Beautiful Agastache!
Love this Agastache! Had 'DS' in 2005 and must have accidentally cut the branches before having new growth come up in 2006 and lost that one. This 'DS' is the one I bought again at High Country Gardens this Spring and I'm not going to cut too early next year and/or any year!
Make sure you wait until any and all late Spring frost/freeze have passed before cutting the old stems and after seeing the new growth is showing. Might be mid to late Spring before you do that.
