Raspberry Summer is one of my favorite Agastaches! Gorgeous flower color!

I just got 3 more plants of Raspberry Summer this Spring! Lovey dubby

Your pic looks wonderful Arlene! Make sure you add it to the database! Thumbs up

It's a pretty one. Isn't it interesting how many of the cultivar names are food items?

So they are good enough to eat--maybe not!! Rolling on the floor laughing They are certainly lovely to look at. I wish I could grow them but hasn't happened, I have a black thumb when it comes to agastaches. Crying

Make sure they have excellent drainage, most like lean (not fertile) soil with sand (not play sand) and crushed gravel on top of the soil and full sun to mostly sunny. I always add small crushed gravel in the planting hole as well,

Agastaches don't like their roots wet during the Winter.

I'm pretty sure Raspberry Summer isn't as finicky as most Agastaches.

Here's from another link of Terra Nova "Easy to grow as long as it has full sun and good drainage." Terra Nova introduced this Agastache, so they would 'know'!

Give this one a try! Thumbs up

And I can see they want good drainage. I have on here at my house in a bed that gets waterlogged when it rains heavily and one at my son's farm. The photo is the one at the farm. The one here is much smaller. I'll have to relocate it to higher ground.

Thanks, Marilyn, for the info from Terra Nova. I love their plants and another agastache of theirs I like is Blue Boa.

I haven't grown Blue Boa, yet. Maybe next year.

Are you growing Blue Boa?

I got 3 teeny little sprouts from a Mamajack co-op last year. I don't think any of them survived. Sad Which is a shame. I haven't found them locally, either. Angry

Wish our Lowe's would carry a bunch of Agastaches!

I've never seen them carry Raspberry Summer before.

I was very surprised to see the orange flowered one-gallon pots Agastaches (wrongly labeled Red Fortune') at our Lowe's the other week. Of course, I had to take 6 of the nicest ones home! nodding Lovey dubby Thumbs up

Then, the same week, I found some Nectar series Agastaches in yellow one-gallon pots at Meijer. I took 4 of the Nectar Raspberry, 1 of the Nectar Grape and 1 of the Nectar Grapefruit home! Lovey dubby nodding Thumbs up

I only got 2 of the Nectar Raspberry plants planted so far.
