Does this attract hummingbirds as well as other agastaches? The flowers don't look like they would.

I think Terese grows it????

nope only bees for me.. but I can say it's a strong grower... once I realized it didn't feed the hummers I dug it out and put it on the fabric over my retaining wall drainage .. with intentions of putting it in the compost bin and the thing rooted and survives a few years later .. guess it has to stay

It's a beautiful plant.....I've read several things that says it does attract hummers, but hard to know how accurate that is. I was thinking of starting some seeds for this. I love the foliage!

if mine comes back I can always root you a cutting as well.. they are easy.. and the foliage got me as well.. but the two years I kept it in place I never saw a hummer near it.. just bees

It's the foliage that caught me, too. But I probably don't really have enough space for it.

I had never grown catmint. I bought a little one (4" pot) of Walker's Low last summer from Santa Rosa. It did pretty well, grew a lot, bloomed a little in a spot with half day sun. The hummers liked it. I'm not sure it will get enough sun there and I might have to move it this year.

you can.. but I don't anymore.. I want blooms before July so I would start them indoors.. you are warmer and should WS them.. but I have some self sow and blooms the same year.. just later than I would like.. since they are almost full season bloomers I don't like to wait

well this is of course a business venture so i don't mind holding them. everything i read says agastache ought to do good here.

what is good is that i have finally found a partner. and this girl is under 30 (she can bend and lift as well as think) and already is taking the initiative. plus she has access to land that is remote from the eyes of city code inspectors yet is still within the city area. they hate my tables and trays of plants. all outside on the side of my yard. anyway the property also has more shade than my place. that has been a problem of mine through every summer and i have lost more than i needed to because of it. and for the last 2 years i have lost almost every seedling i have grown because i neglect them once i start getting plant shipments in. that's where this girl comes in. she can tend to the babies while i am shipping everything else. Green Grin!

sorry i forgot i asked this question here as i just asked it again over on another thread we have going. so disregard answering one place or the other.

one thing confusing to me on agastache is that i read that they tolerate heat and humidity very well. but the main place they are sold is at high country gardens. not sure why there is no local market for these plants.

Maybe because they're so easy from seed?

for the non gardener... or humming bird fanatic.. the flowers are not big enough.. kind of like when my honeys mom said the salvia black & blue had too much green and not enough flowers.. even though I explained it had a long long bloom time.. she didn't care

makes perfect sense and i bet that is the very reason onewish. most people want something that is going to stand out in the landscape.

i am really glad to know these are that easy from seed.
