Plant Features

Summer Raspberry Agastache brings a delightful twist to the summer garden, a symphony of sweet-tart charm played out in vibrant blooms and aromatic foliage. Imagine a compact, 24-32 inch tall perennial, bursting with dense spikes of raspberry-pink flowers, their color echoing the first juicy bite of a summer berry. The blooms, like edible jewels, cast a playful glow over your landscape, attracting hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees with their irresistible nectar.

But Summer Raspberry's appeal transcends its visual delights. Its deep green foliage, exuding a subtle licorice scent when crushed, adds a refreshing note to the floral sweetness. This unassuming beauty thrives in sunshine and well-drained soil, making it a low-maintenance treat for even the busiest gardener. Once established, it shrugs off drought with ease, its blooms refusing to falter even in the summer's harshest rays. Deer and rabbits find its charm unappetizing, leaving your precious plants protected.

Summer Raspberry Agastache shines in a multitude of roles. Picture it adding a touch of whimsical delight to your borders and beds, or weaving its sweet charm through the informal exuberance of a cottage garden. It thrives in containers, bringing a burst of berry-like cheer to patios and balconies. And for the culinary inclined, its leaves lend a unique licorice note to teas and dishes.

Caring for this sweet-tart charmer is a breeze. Simply water deeply when young, then relax as it matures. A pinch of spent blooms keeps the sweet show going, and a light trim in late fall or early spring prepares it for another season of fruity delights.

So, invite Summer Raspberry Agastache into your garden and let its sweet-tart symphony play on. Watch as hummingbirds flit between its blooms, their iridescent feathers twinkling like scattered dewdrops. This low-maintenance gem, with its pollinator-loving nature and effortless beauty, promises to add a touch of summer whimsy and a chorus of buzzing life to your garden haven.

Very happy with my purchase of Agastache.

Plant Inn Mini-Greenhouse & Storage System

The mini-greenhouse is actually nice, once you get it put together. It started out easy in the beginning, but became more difficult to understand the All picture instructions rather then written instructions. Would like another one, but my husband will not put it together...

Agastache plant-Recent Order

Having had a bad experience with another online gardening company, I was a little hesitant about ordering. I placed the order with GrowJoy(which was a very easy process) and received my order within 2 weeks. My Summer Raspberry Agastache plant was packed well, looked very healthy and is now a welcome addition to my garden. Thank you.

Gorgeous Agastache!

Love this Agastache and so do the Hummingbirds! One of my favorite Agastaches! Gorgeous flowers during the Summer season! Make sure you don't cut back the stems until you see new Spring growth of leaves. I even wait til mid to late Spring in case there's a late frost/freeze. A winner of an Agastache!
