AGASTACHE

Dependable, summer-blooming perennials with fragrant foliage. Upright stems packed with whorls of pink, purple, blue, red, or orange flowers make colorful additions to herb gardens and flower borders. Plants rebloom if deadheaded. Species from Mexico and the Southwest need excellent drainage, especially in wet-winter areas.

Agastache cana

Native to Texas and New Mexico. Grows to 2–3 ft. tall and 1 1/2 ft. wide. Blooms heavily, bearing reddish pink flowers that smell like bubble gum. A seed-grown selection, ‘Heather Queen’, blooms the first year from seed sown early in the season. ‘Purple Pygmy’ is compact, at just 16 in. tall.
