Chicky. Yes they are named varieties. I tend to only get named varieties on everything now because I guess I'm more fussy these days.....old age! Some agastaches can seed everywhere and others "run" a bit so with named varieties I know exactly what they will do. Honestly, I feel they are better plants and prob with more flower power. Mine arent even in full flow yet
I have half a dozen new varieties that I am growing on for next year too.
I guess these agastaches are more tender but down here they survive, albeit I take cuttings as a back up. Treated as tender perennials they are fabulous plants, I think. If you were to get one variety I think Sangria is superb....6 or 7' tall full of flower from toe to top on a well behaved erect pillar
