Agastache rupestris 'Apache Sunset'

Plant details

Agastache rupestris 'Apache Sunset',  is a marvellous shade of apricot-orange and a first-rate bedding plant for a one-off summer display. The mass of buds start opening in July, and the plants certainly pull their weight because they keep blooming until early autumn, creating an open, bushy shape with aromatic grey leaves. If you can't get hold of this one, there are plenty more very effective cultivars, including the raspberry red 'Tutti Frutti' and the bluish-purple 'Blue Fortune', which has been given the Award of Garden Merit (AGM) by the Royal Horticultural Society.
