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 soil, and will bloom more profusely, over an even longer period of time, if the flowering stems are cut back midseason.
A noteworthy addition to the genus’ color spectrum, plentiful racemes weave an impressive smoky blue-violet haze upon tall firm stems and, ample notched, lance-shaped green foliage that smells like anise. From July until the first frost, warm-hued 12 in. spires feature 2-lipped tubular flowers and rosy pink calyces anchored in spaced whorls. Exceptional as a container or mixed border specimen and easily maintained by an early pinching, this hardy clump-forming Agastache keeps our interest sparked when cooler nights dress the upright stalks and dapper leaves with a deep purple infusion.
Size: 2' 0" – 3' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 6.
