Q. Will Agastache freeze?

I have 83 Agastache I planted last year. In the next few days, the temperature could go below 32 degrees. Can they survive a short freeze? Talking hours – or will they need to be covered??

Your plants should be just fine in temperatures at or below freezing.

Agasthache are hardy down to 10 degrees F.

These can benefit from some light pruning and deadheading, to control their shape and size. It could also be that they are lacking light if they are in a shaded area, or if an area seems to get too dry.

This depends on where you are located. The plants are hardy in zones 4 through 10. Outside of these zones it will need some extra care. Within these bounds, the plants will do just fine on their own.
