I have this plant growing in 3 spots in my garden. It has done best in a potting mix in a very large decorative planter. It gets full hot baking summer sun and is drought resistant. We had a few days of over 100 degree heat this summer (3 days in a row so far) with high humidity and this plant was unaffected! It has not stopped blooming. The hummers visit it occasionally. It is more of a bee plant here. The hummers prefer my monarda and salvia over this plant. I do enjoy its apricot blooms.

A wonderful agastache I grew from seed! I have a plant growing in a 12" pot and it's about 2' tall. Unfortunately it is not hardy to my zone 5b, but I do plan to continue to grow it from seed year to year...

Apricot Sprite overwintered very well in a semi dry slightly raised bed on the western side of my home here in NY state.. Even under a foot of snow the foilage stayed green all winter long. It also lightly reseeded. The hummers love this little plant and it is very easy to grow from seed.
