Dwarf Hummingbird Mint

Agastache 'Kudos Coral' PP25,613

Low, bushy mound bearing upright spikes of warm coral-colored plumes.

One of several recent hybrid selections, this is a real workhorse in the garden, flowering nonstop from midsummer well into the autumn and it’s easy to grow. It forms a low, bushy mound bearing upright spikes of warm coral-colored plumes that attract both hummingbirds and butterflies. Great in containers or in a mixed border. Must have excellent drainage, particularly during winter otherwise plants may rot and not survive. Quite possibly hardy to Zone 4 or colder in dry winter regions. A 2013 introduction in the KUDOS™ Series from Terra Nova Nurseries in Oregon. USPP#25613: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
