Have you had success in the past with the A. cana? We have a very difficult time with t because of our humidity. Being from the SouthWest, they are adapted to dry-dry-dry, and seem just to fade away for us.

I've planted A. cana off and on over the years, but it didn't live each time.

Marilyn - I only ordered 3 roses from Palatine Roses this year, nothing else. I'll get everything else locally. If it wasn't under a new 8"+ layer of snow, I'd post pictures of how some of my Orange & Grape Nectar agastaches are already sending up new leaves for the spring! Yay!

Kudos Yellow is brand new, and we are I believe the first nursery in the country to offer it:


Thumb of 2015-02-15/FBTS/ab7f63


A great addition to the group, and all of the colors blend very well.

This Agastache is as good as Summer Glow as far as fading, if not better. And the Kudos series are compact, long blooming and more tolerant of moisture than most others of this genus. Another winner from Terra Nova.

Garden Harvest Supply - Ordered 3/9/15.

Decided to get more plants for the bees/butterflies and a couple of others.

One of each.....

Mint-Spearmint Herb
Black Adder Agastache
Surfinia Deep Red Petunia
Oregano-Greek Herb
May Night Hardy Salvia
Sage-Pineapple Herb
Butterfly Blue Scabiosa

Shipping week of 4/27/15

I placed an order Saturday night to Select Seeds for some plants, but have yet to get an email confirmation from them. Grumbling I didn't print the conf. # after I submitted the order (we have been out of printer paper) and they won't/don't respond to my emails. Grumbling Thumbs down Sad Angry

Don't feel like having to make a phone call, so I don't know if any plants from them are going to arrive or not this Spring.
