Agastache 'Summer Fiesta' was introduced by Terra Nova Nurseries.

It's a beautiful and colorful Agastache when it's in bloom.

I have it planted in the ground and I'm hoping it survived another winter.

I absolutely love this Agastache. It has a wonderful color. It is not a dwarf, but it does not get too big. This was the second year for mine. Sadly, it was not very vigorous, but it did survive. By the end of the summer, it was of such decent size and health that its chances for overwintering seem good. It did, however, throw off some seeds that produced interesting seedlings. One is more pink than the original. It is a lovely plant. One seedling seems to be almost identical to the parent, and the third seedling produced a washed-out pink bloom that is not very attractive. I plan to remove this one.

I do hope the parent plant survives as I did not see this sold at the big box stores this year and did not find any mail order companies offering this variety.
