Plant Features

Imagine a plant with flowers as soft and fluffy as spun sugar, dancing in the breeze and attracting a vibrant chorus of hummingbirds and butterflies. That's the magic of Cotton Candy Agastache, a perennial charmer that will add a touch of whimsical delight to your garden from summer to fall.

Cotton Candy Agastache lives up to its name with airy, light pink blooms that resemble clouds of spun sugar. These delicate beauties bloom in dense spikes atop sturdy stems, creating a captivating display that will turn heads and bring joy to your outdoor space. The blooms are more than just a pretty face, too – their subtle licorice fragrance adds another layer of sensory pleasure to the experience.

This low-maintenance plant thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. Once established, it's impressively drought-tolerant, making it a perfect choice for busy gardeners or those in hot climates. Deadheading spent flowers encourages even more blooms, and a light pruning in early spring keeps the plant looking its best.

Cotton Candy Agastache is a magnet for pollinators, attracting hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees with its irresistible nectar and sweet fragrance. Watching these winged friends’ flit and dance among the flowers adds a touch of magic to your garden and helps support the vital ecosystem.

While its beauty is undeniable, Cotton Candy Agastache offers more than just visual appeal. The licorice-scented leaves can be used to make a refreshing tea, and the dried flowers add a touch of whimsy to potpourris and sachets.

Let Cotton Candy Agastache paint your garden with sweetness and charm. This easy-to-grow perennial is sure to become a beloved favorite, adding a touch of carefree joy to your outdoor space. Order yours today and watch your garden transform into a pollinator paradise filled with the magic of summer!

Cotton Candy Agastache plants arrived in great shape!

Looking forward to watching it grow!

Agastache growing fast

The plant arrived well packaged and healthy. I planted it in my container soon after arrival. Now, just over a month has passed and this plant is already forming blossom stalks. This is a very healthy plant. I love buying my plants from GrowJoy. I highly recommend their plants and other gardening supplies.

Beautiful...already tripled in size

I ordered two of the Cotton Candy Agastache plants back in March (Gainesville, FL) b/c they are supposed to be attractive to hummingbirds. They arrived very healthy, but really small. I waited until April to plant them to ensure we didn't have another frost. Within a week they truly doubled in size!! Now their over a foot high and blooming like crazy. I've seen a hummingbird and a hummingbird moth on them. I'm so happy, I ordered another one recently for a bare spot and it is thriving. I hope these do well over the winter so I'll have these plants for a long time to come!!

Bring on the butterflies

These Cotton Candy Agastache are great plants to attract bees and butterflies and look terrific while doing it. They can take the heat and once established, have low water requirements.
