Agastaches are scented perennials from North America, China and Japan, where they grow in poor, dry ground. They're perfect for growing in gravel or Mediterranean-style gardens, and may also be grown in containers on a sunny patio.

Agastache rupestris 'Apache Sunset' bears flowers in a marvellous shade of apricot-orange, contrasting beautifully with aromatic grey foliage. For best results grow in free-draining soil in full sun. In colder regions, protect from frost in winter.
