A celebration of colour, this plant is tolerant of poor soils, doesn’t mind the heat and you can even brew a tea with the leaves. The garden party begins late spring, when the raspberry red flowers begin to open, and it continues up to frost.
This compact plant has strong, upright stems with outstanding heat and dry tolerance. It suited to both gardens and pots.
Agastache flowers and leaves are edible and can be used in salads or teas.
Standing up to heat and 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 you only need to worry if rainfall is low. Rabbits rarely show an interest and they aren’t troubled by disease.
We recommend dead heading your Agastache flowers regularly during the season to encourage more blooms OR a mid season cut back (don’t forget to water and fertilise after) for a rebloom into autumn. It is a good idea to cut your plants back to the ground in winter or early spring to maintain a healthy bush and allow the new growth to shine.
Agastache is also known as Hummingbird Mint or Anise Hyssop, they are native to the south western U.S.A and Mexico.
