Lovers of heat, these tough and drought resistant Mint family relatives guarantee terminal spikes adorned with brightly colored, tubular flowers just about all summer long. Agastaches are easily grown in well drained soils, and will bloom more profusely, over an even longer period of time, if the flowering stems are cut back in midseason.
A beacon to hummingbirds, honeybees, and butterflies, this enthralling Jelitto introduction spotlights large long blooming spikes housing brilliant rose purple tubes with violet calyxes, held well above dark bronzy green foliage. Parented by two southwestern American species, Agastache cana and Agastache barberi, ‘Bolero’s lush leaves garb a compact, handsomely branched, licorice-scented frame, which wards off pests and endures hot, dry conditions. Place amid Kniphofia ‘Safranvogel’, Penstemon ‘Elizabeth Cozzens’ and Aster ‘Harrington's Pink’ for a prismatic soirée.
Size: 16" high x 16" wide; hardy to zone 5.
Agastache ‘Bolero’ (P-1741)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
