A very hardy perennial ideal for a sunny or a lightly shaded border.
Agastache are hybrids bred from the herb hyssops. Hyssops are great for adding vertical accents to a border, with whirls of long-lasting, tiny flowers arranged like a bottlebrush and pointed, aromatic fresh green leaves that are attractive to butterflies and bees. They are short-lived though, and may need replacing every few years, especially after a cold or wet winter.
Rugosa has loose spires of lilac-blue flowers from July to October and peppermint-scented leaves.
This upright, bushy perennial is perfect for the middle of a sheltered, sunny border. Try it as part of a Mediterranean scheme, with grey-leaved plants, or among ornamental grasses.
Garden care: Don't cut back the faded flower-stems until early spring, as they provide interest in the winter months. Lift and divide congested colonies in spring.
Habit: Bushy, Compact, Upright
The plant is grown in 2 litre pot and is approx 30cm tall excluding the pot
