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 beacon to hummingbirds, honeybees, and butterflies, this enthralling Jelitto introduction spotlights large long blooming spikes housing brilliant rose purple tubes with violet calyxes, held well above dark bronzy green foliage. Parented by two southwestern American species, Agastache cana and Agastache barberi, ‘Bolero’s lush leaves garb a compact, handsomely branched, licorice-scented frame, which wards off pests and endures hot, dry conditions. Place amid Kniphofia ‘Safranvogel’, Penstemon ‘Elizabeth Cozzens’ and Aster ‘Harrington's Pink’ for a prismatic soirée.
Size: 16" high x 16" wide.
