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.
This tall eye-catching Agastache is celebrated for its whorled, Salvia-like floral spikes that ignite a long-lasting fiery kaleidoscope of color. Splashed with copper, coral, pink and red hues, the sweetly aromatic tubular blooms populate numerous erect leafy stems, rising above gray-green mint-scented foliage. Parented by Agastache coccinea and Agastache rupestris and hybridized by Richard Dufresne, ‘Firebird’ blooms exuberantly, tempts butterflies and hummingbirds, plus it flavors herbal teas.
Size: 2' 0" – 3' 0" high x 18" – 2' 0" wide.
