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.  This description is based on research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We also try to incorporate comments received from others and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Agastache 'Apricot Sunrise'.
