Agastache Arcado Pink

Agastache hybridaLatin name

Mexican HyssopCommon name

Agastache Arcado Pink is a magnificent first year flowering perennial - if seed is sown early in spring it will flower from summer into autumn – and the following year it will start to come into flower earlier. Spikes of vivid purple-pink flowers open over a long season above fresh green aromatic foliage, attracting masses of butterflies, bees and other beneficial insects. They’re good for cutting, too, ideally when the spikes are about half open and should last about ten days. Arcado Pink is best in full sun and in a site that where the soil is fairly well drained. Good drainage will help ensure that plants overwinter well. In bloom from early summer to autumn, this plant is both vibrant in colour and stamina. Half hardy perennial that can be grown as an annual.

How to Grow Agastache from Seed

Agastaches are loved by bees and butterflies, their versatile blooms last well as cut flowers too. A relative of the mint family Agastache flowers are high in oils and their foliage is both attractive and aromatic. Agastache is well suited to a cottage garden setting, but it can fit in nicely in any border.

Agastache is an undemanding perennial, preferring sun but tolerating light shade.

Agastache seeds can be sown indoors in late winter or early spring for a transplanting outdoors in May once the danger of frost has passed. Sow in trays using a free-draining compost, gently press the flower seeds into the surface of the soil but do not cover.

Keep moist without over-wetting and transplant into 3 inch pots to grow on until established and ready for planting out.

Agastache plants grown from seed will take two years to bloom.
