Agastache mexicana 'Acapulco Rose' has gorgeous flowers.

It was introduced by Bodger Botanicals a few years ago.

The series Bodger debuted was called the Acapulco series, bred by Kieft. There were three in the series: 'Acapulco Rose,' 'Acapulco Orange,' and 'Acapulco Salmon & Pink.'

After this was originally introduced, Green Fuse Botanicals bought Bodger Botanicals.
