Jo Ann, I love, love, love agastaches and I really loaded up on them this fall after enjoying watching the humming birds all summer on the few existing ones I had. That Apache Sunset is just gorgeous! I didn't realize I should tip prune in spring so next spring I will be doing that! Thanks for the info!

Arlene. When I wrote the article I checked Bluestone for accuracy and care instructions. I didnt realize tipping would be appropriate either.
I have Ava ( this spring ) outside the living room windows and will treat it that way next spring, as I would like to see a fuller plant.

Seeing this makes article and all the others recently about Agastache makes me want to get some in my garden. Your pictures are so pretty. Since I am in zone 6b, I guess they would overwinter for me too.

Great article, Jo Ann! I LOVE agastache. However, I am confused by it. I have grown Blue Fortune, Black Adder and Golden Jubilee here in frigid zone 4 for years, though none are rated more than zone 5 or 6. They bloom for more than 2 months, are maintenance-free, and draw bees and butterflies like nothing else. I would love to plant them in every color, but none of the others I have tried will make it through the winter here.
Thanks for writing about these wonderful plants!

Old gardeners never die. They are just pruned and repotted.
