Ahhh Agastaches! Great go-to perennials for late Summer thru Fall garden color! And everyone loves the unique hues of this durable, heat and drought tolerantSouthwestern American native. To 2-3' tall and wide with highly appealing, silvery-blue-green, feathery-looking foliage – by August it bursts into a mass of tubular flowers the colors of a pretty sunset, salmon overlaid with cerise tints, held in harmonious lavender-mauve calyces. Bloom spikes keep coming for several months, bringing all the neighborhood hummingbirds! Make sure to provide infertile,well-drained soil. Cut back in Winter/early Spring for best, bushy appearance next season. Hardy to 5-10 degrees F.
