Agastache mexicana ‘Sangria’
at Digging Dog

Mexican Giant Hyssop

Agastache mexicana Sangria

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.

Blooms July – October.

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

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!
