Agastache ‘Rosie Posie’ bears loads of hot pink flowers with magenta purple calyxes just at the top of the foliage for a neatly proportional look. Because the calyxes are so colorful, this plant continues to look like it is blooming long after it is finished. It will bloom from midsummer through early fall. Its aromatic, bright green foliage grows into a densely compact, ball-shaped clump, much more refined looking than older cultivars. Because it is a zone 6 plant so it will likely not survive our winter but it is such an incredible pollinator magnet it is worth it to plant a few for that purpose.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

This is a great plant for hot, dry, sunny climates. Well-drained soil is a must, especially in the winter. This plant will not tolerate heavy clay soil but grows well in average to light soil with low to medium moisture levels. It's officially listed as a zone 6 perennial so it should be considered an annual however leave it to see if it does overwinter.  No serious pest or disease problems have been reported with this plant.
