A new look Agastache.
Golden Jubilee displays chartreuse yellow foliage with that same heavenly mint
smell that the both the gardener and the hummingbirds love this plant for. Large
purple blooms contrast nicely against the yellow leaves. A very heavy bloomer that
begins its show in early summer and stays in color right up until the first frost.
The breeder K. Sahin Zadin of Holland chose the name to
Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee. As with all other Agastache's the plant stands up
to hot dry summer days with no problem - in fact the heat intensifies the the wonderful
mint smell. Golden Jubilee is not quiet as hardy as the other Agastaches we grow -
hardy only to zone 6. An All American Selection winner in 2003 and with good
reason - Golden Jubilee is an outstanding addition to any perennial garden.
Plant in full sun and provide a rich well drained soil. Fertilize in early
spring with a top dressing of compost and bone meal. Liquid feed through out the
summer with fish emulsion or seaweed extract. Agastache prefers dry soils and is
considered to be a very drought tolerant plant.
