Agastache mexicana ‘Sangria’
at Digging Dog

Mexican Giant Hyssop

Agastache mexicana Sangria

July – October.

Agastache

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.

With refreshing lemon-perfumed elliptical-shaped foliage that can be brewed for tea, oodles of whorled, closely set red-purple flowers studding 12 in. tall spikes and a full upright form, tangy ‘Sangria’ can be easily tucked into your garden. A resident of northern Mexico and our very own Southwest, this Jelitto introduction is relished by hummingbirds and makes an intriguing statement alongside Eryngium amethystina.

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 7.
