Agastache Raspberry Summer * Raspberry Summer Hummingbird Mint

Agastache Raspberry Summer is another spectacularly colorful Hummingbird Mint. Agastache Raspberry Summer can grow to 2 feet tall and wide. The plants are very particular about their soil. The need well drained soil. I often keep them in containers when the soil in the garden is not a perfect match. Heat is not a problem. Regular irrigation also helps a lot. The root crowns need to dry between irrigation cycles. And they rot away quickly in soggy soil. Think sandy gravel on a stream bank well above the water level. The long slender raspberry pink flowers attract hummingbirds and the roots attract gophers. Care should be taken for the latter.
