Agastache aurantiaca ‘Copper Rose’
This larger flowered and more vigorous selection of A. aurantiaca was trialled for a couple of years in our stock garden before release. It makes a soundly perennial plant some 120cm tall and 100cm wide with a long succession of large tubular, copper-apricot flowers which age to rose-copper. Our resident New Holland Honeyeaters feast on the nectar of its flowers from mid-summer until late autumn. I cut it back to the basal new growth during winter. Drought tolerant.
