I grew this from seed this year, winter sowing. But by the time I got to planting out I was so overwhelmed and did not label my plants. I grew 8 different agastaches. I'm not sure where my Apache Sunsets are!

That is beautiful. I have a feeling I will be planting more and more Agastache than anything else the next couple of years. They seem to go with everything else. They are the perfect plant to me. The fact that so many special ones come from seeds just makes them even more special.

When I bought Agastache ‘Tutti Frutti,' I was surprised how good my car smelled on the way home. They need to make some air freshener out of them!

I went crazy growing agastache this year. When I was planting I started to get frustrated because it turned out to be too many. Then I started finding all kinds of seedlings from my existing agastache and I felt compelled to save them! I still love my agastache, but I'm a bit over them this year.

And the one yellow one I lost over the winter was the one that did not bless me with babies 😞

One year I grew a yellow one, 'Summer Glow', it died and no babies. Was that the one?

That one died for me and I just bought it this year. You can't win them all.

That one died for me during the same year I bought it. I haven't tried growing it since.

Mine established great. It actually seemed like it would make it thru winter but then it just didn't at the end. I never saw it available this year.
