Plant Overview

Agastache aurantiaca ‘Apricot Sprite’ is an outstanding perennial that provides a sizzling blast of tubular, peachy-apricot flowers during mid to late summer and flower continuously until frost. A splendid addition to summer containers.

Height: 30cm

Agastache aurantiaca tolerate more summer water than other species. They prefer a sunny situation with moderately moist, fertile soil. They tolerate cold temperatures but do not like to be frozen so are best planted in a container which can be protected over winter. The large quantities of essential oils in the leaves make the plants highly resistant to browsing animals including deer. 

Works well in a container on the patio which can then be moved into a greenhouse or cold frame in the autumn if expecting a severe winter.

Common name(s): Giant hyssop

All our plants are supplied in 9cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant.
The majority of our plants are grown outdoors. This means that they follow their natural growth patterns and are ready to plant at any time of the year. If you order the plants in winter, they are likely to be dormant and died back to ground level, ready to shoot again in spring - just like the herbaceous perennials in your own garden. Very occasionally, in winter, we may indicate on the packing slip that a plant needs to be hardened off before planting out. This will be because it has just come out of a polytunnel. If you have any questions about our plants or growing methods, please feel free to drop us an email.
We grow most of what we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
