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.
Originally bred by the Dutch plantsman, Brian Kabbes and introduced by Jelitto Seeds in 2010, this straight-standing stalwart Agastache proudly presents showy dense spikes of pretty lilac pink flowers and purplish red bracts. The large plentiful blooms provide copious amounts of nectar and produce seeds that goldfinches adore, plus look fantastic in bouquets. Tea-worthy peppermint-scented elliptical leaves offer additional perks, while a well-drained, somewhat dry not too fertile site assures its longevity.
Size: 2-1/2' – 3' 0" high x 18" wide.
