Tubular blooms of apricot orange form dense flower spikes above clumps of silvery green, richly aromatic foliage. Agastache aurantiaca 'Apricot Sprite' is compact and quick growing - the perfect choice for beds and containers or filling gaps in borders. Bred and selected by T&M, this free flowering, half hardy perennial has been awarded a Fleuroselect Quality Mark. All this, and it also flowers in its first year from seed! Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 30cm (12").
Water regularly until plants are fully established. Deadhead faded Agastache flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced.
Sow Agastache seeds from February to April at 15-20C (60-68F), on the surface of a good quality seed compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Keep the soil damp but not wet and do not exclude light. Place in a propagator or seal the seed tray inside a polythene bag until after germination, which usually takes 14-28 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When Agastache plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in full sun on fertile, well drained soil at a distance of 60cm (24") apart.
