Agastache Beelicious Purple

NollieNollie Girona, Catalunya, Northen SpainPosts: 3,582
This is meant to be a dwarf agastache to 50cm, but I’m wondering if it will stick to that height or grow bigger? 

I have Black Adder, stated height 90cm, but it grows nearly twice that height here and swamps everything, whereas Blue Boa keeps roughly within stated height, so I’m wondering if Beelicious is truly a dwarf or has giant tendencies...

I won’t know how it will do here until I try it, of course, but if anyone grows it and can tell me how it behaves for them that might give me a clue, thanks.

    I've got one that only gets to about 40 cm. Although I do think the growing conditions affect the height a lot.

    Thanks, @Bijdezee, good to know some are short, I don’t suppose you remember the name of it? I do have A. Aurantica Tango, an orange, shrubby one that stays compact, but but it’s difficult to predict which of the purple spire types will keep within bounds.

    It was Agastache Kudos coral.

    Ah, OK, not a purple one then! Thanks @Bijdezee. I believe there is a compact Kudos purple one too. Think I will just give the Beelicious Purple a go and see how I get on. It’s for underplanting roses. I guess if it gets too big I can move to another border.
