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 popular 2011 introduction by Germany’s Jelitto Seeds, this spirited pollinator mainstay presents a compact, tailored foundation topped by erect, crowded spires, ablaze with lambent scarlet-
orange hues plus a smidge of violet and dusty-rose. Attractive grayish green leaves are redolent and edible, yielding a delightful anise-flavored tea. Ideal for border frontage, butterfly gardens or containers, ‘Tango’ promises easy care, months of prismatic bloom and a smaller size that can be nudged into just about any bright, well-drained cranny.
Size: 12" – 18" high x 12" – 16" wide.
Hardy to zone 5.
