Hummingbird Mint

Agastache hybrid 'Morello' PP029527

Large, dense spikes of rich burgundy rose flowers supported by showy dark foliage and upright stems.

Large, dense spikes of rich burgundy rose provide a calling card for butterflies and pollinators. Cooler temperatures bring showy dark foliage to the upright beauty. With good mildew resistance, this Hummingbird Mint is an appealing addition in a sun loving garden. Provide with full sun, and well drained soil to ensure their longevity, while removing faded flowers promotes continuous summer blooms. Scented foliage is good for flavoring drinks and drying. Stems should be left to overwinter, tip or remove new growth during early to mid s-ring for more flowering stems and a compact build.
