Cotton Candy Agastache Plants produce dense flower spikes of frilly, light pink flowers with darkly colored calyces that catches the eye of every onlooker. Known to attract butterflies, the blooms look remarkably like fluffy pink cotton candy; reviving pleasant childhood memories for some and creating a craving for that summer delicacy in others. Who knew a simple plant could do that? It offers a long flowering season, heat and drought tolerance, and scented foliage! Removing the spent flowers keeps it blooming longer.

Cotton Candy Agastache Plant Care: Keep the plant well-watered for the first 4-5 weeks. After that, only water if the plant starts looking droopy. Leave the spent flowers on the plant throughout the winter as birds enjoy eating the seeds. It can be cut back to around 6 inches from the ground in early spring before the new growth starts. This is also a good time to apply fertilizer for the year.
