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.
