Finally a red that is really red in full sun!

You will appreciate this dwarf, well-branched plant with its “glowing red flowers.” Great reblooming flower clusters. A tender perennial with aromatic leaves and colorful flower spikes all summer long. While traditional varieties have blue or purple colored flowers, newer varieties feature bold colors such as red and orange.

In warm climates, it comes back consistently each year. In cold climates is self-sows readily making it an annual addition to your garden. The flowers are attractive to hummingbirds, butterflies and bees, while the anise-flavored leaves can be used in teas and cooking.

Agastache are usually tall plants and their lengthy stalks show best at the back of a perennial border or lining a fence. They can be used in container gardens or in cut flower gardens, as the Agastache flowers are long lasting. Growing Agastache in the butterfly garden not only attracts those beautiful insects, but pollinators and hummingbirds. Deer and rabbits do not seem to enjoy Agastache, which makes it ideal for the woodland garden.
