Welcome to Tuesday's Truths week four where I will be discussing truisms re the Agastache 'Apicot Sunrise' plants. I'm long over due in introducing you to this plant type which Juan V planted in my urban (NYC) rooftop garden earlier this summer (after I found and procured these plants from a Brooklyn nursery). I have a few of the Agastaches planted in a box as seen in the image atop this entry.
And I have three different claypots "housing" an Agastache, one of them can be seen below.
As you can see, this robin is quite young, hence his/her breast has not yet a deep red, but the coloring matches the hues of my Agastache's flowers! If, dear reader, you live in a zone in which the Agastache will thrive, I highly recommend this awesome plant. The Agastache has enhanced my garden in such a way that I hesitate to make use of it for cut flowers or use the plant's foliage in tea. Therefore, as of this posting, my Agastache's role in my garden is for the birds!
