Agastache rupestris

Agastache rupestris

I really like Agastaches ("Hyssop" of "Licorice Mint") but alas, they too often peter out after only one season. This really beautiful Southwestern Agastache does not! It makes a perfect bushy form about 2' tall by 2' wide and blooms mid-Summer thru fall with a multitude of apricot and pinky-purple spikes. The foliage is also extremely ornamental and fragrant with thread-like grey-green leaves, giving the entire plant a soft, wispy look. The nectar rich flowers are much loved by hummingbirds! It prefers a not too rich, well-drained soil. A 1997 Plant Select winner.
