Agastache aurantiaca 'Apricot Sprite'

£4.75

Plant Information

Aspect: Full Sun
Soil Type: Most Types
Colour: Apricot

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

Information

  • All our plants are hardy and perennial (come back year after year) unless otherwise specified in the description.
  • Every plant we sell is sold established in at least a 9cm pot, although many are in bigger pots. Unlike some nurseries, we do not sell plug plants because these require ongoing care when you receive them. Our plants can be planted in your garden as soon as you receive them, or they can be left in their pots for several weeks until you are ready to plant them.
  • As we grow everything ourselves and cannot just buy more stock when levels are low, there will be times when certain varieties are unavailable until the next batch has grown on.
  • We are not technically 'organic' but, as far as possible, we limit the use of pesticides and chemicals. We are fortunate enough to be situated in the countryside and we enjoy the environment and natural world that surrounds us, so we do what we reasonably can to protect it.
  • For a limited time we are offering free delivery for orders over £50.
If you have any questions about our plants, please feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to help.
