AGASTACHE: Sweet Smelling and Visually Interesting!

Agastache has it all!
Plant them to add color, texture, structure, fragrance, and late-season bloom to your garden. The bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds will thank you!
Agastache is a perennial plant with lovely flower spires that bloom all season long. The Agastache flower is commonly found in purple to lavender but may also bloom in pink, rose, blue, white and orange.

Growing Agastache as a drought-loving perennial actually produces the best plants. Agastache plant is tolerant of low water and poor nutrient conditions but provides you with a color display and enduring greenery for months.
It's a Pollinator favorite! The sweet smell and vibrant flowers keep the bees and butterflies interested for most of the summer.

The tubular flowers produce a nectar that is irresistible to hummingbirds and butterflies. So much, that they are often called"hummingbird mint".
There are many companion plants that grow well with Agastache. Staying with the dry conditions theme, Russian Sage, Lavender, and Rosemary all grow in the similar conditions that Agastache love!

Summer grasses like switch grass, feather reed grass, and fountain grass, all provide flower heads when Agastache is blooming, making a nice visual match in the garden!
Agastache is in the Hyssop family of herbs and makes a flavorful tea. It is a striking plant that has many varieties, some of which are hardy and others that are frost tender and grown as annuals in most cooler climates. Growing Agastache requires sun and well drained soil. The leaves resemble catmint and are a dull green with heavy veining. The plants can grow 2 to 6 feet tall and produce the showy Agastache flowers until the first frost.
Similarly to Lavender, these plants are resistant deer and rabbits,making them a perfect addition to New Jersey gardens.
