An asset in the garden, this compact perennial is covered in blooms throughout summer. Between the buds and the blooms there is a lovely lavender and peach bicolour show.
Agastache ‘Arizona Sunset’ stands up to the summer heat and the fragrant green foliage has a handsome bronze blush.

Agastache ‘Arizona Sunset’ looks fantastic in dry beds, cottage gardens, rock gardens and containers. It is an excellent plant for attracting birds, bees and other beneficial insects to your garden.

Agastache ‘Arizona Sunset' has fragrant leaves that smell like a blend of aniseed and lemon - they are even edible and can be used in salads or teas. The foliage is wonderful planted along paths where you can brush up against it, or you could pick a sprig or two and bring indoors to enjoy in a vase. The flowers are also edible, and will colour a salad beautifully.
You should dead head your Agastache flowers regularly during the season to encourage more blooms.

Tolerant of poor soils, so long as they are well drained, Agastache are ideal for providing long lasting colour as a dry garden plant. Agastache plants prefer a full sun to light shade position, they need water to establish, then only if rainfall is low, however the flowering season will last longer if the plants are kept moist.

It is a good idea to cut your Agastache plants back to the ground in winter to maintain a healthy bush.

Agastache is also known as 'Hummingbird Mint', and is a native to the south western U.S.A.
