Plant of the Month: Agastache

Also known as Hyssop, these summer blooming perennials feature dark green leaves and spikes of bright flowers in shades of purple, pink, orange and yellow.  Agastache average 2 to 4 feet tall. Perfect for mass plantings, border, pollinator gardens and containers.

Care

Full sun to part sun. Too much shade can result in reduced flowering.

Moist, well-drained soil. Drought tolerant once established.

Agastache rarely wants fertilization, but should the need arise, select a fertilizer for flowers such as Dr. Earth Total Advantage.
