Agastache have been bred for heat tolerant, compact growth and flower power. As an added bonus, the blooms act like magnets to bees and butterflies!

Agastache look fantastic in dry beds, cottage gardens, rock gardens and containers.

Agastache have fragrant leaves that smell like a blend of aniseed and lemon - they are even edible and can be used in salads or teas. The aromatic foliage is wonderful planted along paths where you can brush up against it, or be reminded to pick a sprig or two to bring indoors and enjoy in a vase. The flowers are also edible, and will colour a salad beautifully.

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 (regularly for around four to six weeks), then only if rainfall is low. However the flowering season will likely last a little longer if the plants don't dry out completely.

We recommend dead heading your Agastache flowers regularly during the season to encourage more blooms. In late winter or early spring it is a good idea to cut your Agastache plants back hard to maintain a healthy bush. You can grow these compact Agastache in containers, you will just need to water them more regularly.

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