Agastache aurantiaca 'Apricot Sunrise' (Giant Hyssop) - An erect herbaceous perennial that can reach 3 feet tall and spreads to 3 feet wide with arrowhead-shaped, olive-green leaves and golden orange tubular flowers that appear summer through fall. Grows best in full sun, but can grow in open shade, in well-draining soil. Fairly drought tolerant but looks best with some summer irrigation. Hardy to about 15-20 degrees F. This hybrid of Agastache coccinea and A. auriantica was created by Richard Dufresne.  The information about Agastache aurantiaca 'Apricot Sunrise' displayed on this page is based on research conducted in our library and from reliable online resources. We also relate observations made about it as it grows in our nursery gardens and other gardens we visit, as well how the crops have performed in containers in our nursery field.
