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 on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We have also incorporated comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing  Agastache 'Apricot Sunrise'.
