Plant Details

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 at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
