I love this one too and of course, it's one of my favorites. It's another great Agastache introduced by High Country Gardens of Santa Fe, NM, but I don't see it available right now on their website.

Very similar to apache sunset, another of my favorites. I grow most of mine from seed. My sunsets didn't do very well last year but I can see the did survive so maybe they will thrive this year.

That's what we have here too. I try to make sure it has a lot of all purpose sand (not play sand) in the soil, not fertile soil and small crushed gravel on top of the soil and excellent drainage.
