Agastaches are relatively new perennials and annuals for the garden belonging to the mint family Agastaches, also known by the common names of Hyssop or Hummingbird Mint, There are many different species of Agastaches that are native to North America.

Agastaches are great additions to the garden and do best in containers. They attract hummingbirds butterflies and other pollinators. They withstand dry conditions and are very heat tolerant. As an extra bonus, few animals bother them because the bitter oils make the plants unpalatable to them. deer tend to shun Agastaches.

Agastaches in this area are best grown as annuals.. They do not like damp conditions and thrive with very little feeding. Also they do not like acidic soil either.

We off er this year, The Arizona series which grow to 10 inches tall and are available in orange, yellow and pink. We also offer the Kudo's Mandarin from Terra Nova plants. This varieties grows to 18 inches and is hardier. These Agastaches attract a  variety of wildlife to you garden and are hummingbird and butterfly magnets. Make sure your soil is well drained and the plants receive full sun. They will bloom all summer.
