Agastache 'TNAGAPO'

Common Name(s):

Description

The Poquito™ Orange Hyssop  is an interspecific hybrid.  Its flowers on airy spikes add fine texture to any garden and sets it apart from other herbaceous ornamentals with less refined foliage in the landscape.  Plant in the full sun and it tolerates a wide variety of soil types but prefers alkaline soils with average moisture levels.  It is considered drought and salt tolerant so makes a great choice for a low-water use landscape; it will die in standing water.  Prune in spring as the plant begins to grow if it has become leggy.  It works well in beds, borders, or planted in containers.

It can be propagated by division; however, as a cultivated variety, be aware that it may be subject to certain restrictions or prohibitions on propagation.
