Details
18-24" tall x 18" wide (seed propagated) This delightfully different native Agastache, with its tight spikes of small, fragrant lavender-pink flowers and stiff upright stems, is sure to please. Unlike other native Agastache that attract hummingbirds, NM Hummingbird Mint is excellent as a nectar source for bumblebees and butterflies.

The mid-summer flowers have a sweet scent with a hint of lavender and are excellent for dried arrangements. A sturdy, easily grown plant that grows wonderfully alongside Lavender and Ratibida.

Tips for growing Agastache

Agastache are sun loving plants with aromatic foliage and flowers. They bloom from mid-summer into early fall and are resistant to rabbits and deer.

Agastache need lean, well-drained soils, prefer gravel mulches, and appreciate deep but infrequent watering after their second growing season

  1. Provide a fast draining soil that's naturally low in fertility, Don't plant into clay soils.
  2. Plant in full hot sun.
  3. Just a few handfuls of compost in the planting hole is enough. Don't plant into a rich, highly amended soil..
  4. Fertilize the Agastache just once in fall with Yum Yum Mix and Planters II.
  5. New transplants need regular irrigation their first growing season to establish themselves. Watering can be reduced greatly during the second growing season when the plants have matured.

To improve winter-hardiness, and encourage re-seeding, leave the stems intact over the winter. In mid-spring, remove old stems just above the new foliage, about 4 or 5 inches above ground level.

If your conditions don't lend themselves to growing Agastache in your garden, they do well planted in containers.
