New Mexico Hummingbird Mint (Agastache neomexicana) is a smaller growing species with narrow spikes of aromatic lavender-pink flowers. A very upright grower, Agastache neomexicana attracts butterflies and bees to its nectar rich flowers.
24-30" tall x 18" wide. New Mexico Hummingbird Mint (Agastache neomexicana) is a delightfully different native Agastache, with its tight spikes of small, fragrant lavender-pink flowers and stiff upright stems, it 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. Cut back old stems to 2-3" above ground level in mid-spring. A sturdy, easily grown plant that grows wonderfully alongside Lavender and Ratibida. (Seed propagated.)
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
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.

A new favorite
By Farm girl
from Alvarado, Texas
About Me Master Gardener
Bought this last fall, did not look great when I got it, and I was not very hopeful since we had the coldest winter in years. Remained very small long into the spring, but when it did start to grow it took off! Very beautiful, full and love the color. Perfect for my border. Exactly what I wanted and was glad I was patient with it. Definitely will recommend and probably buy more this year.

Survival rate poor
By The farm life
from Davenport, Washington
About Me Avid Gardener
It was a great plant except that when I moved it last fall, it didn't make the transition. Maybe it doesn't like to be moved. However, all of the agastache's that I've tried die eventually (some survive longer than others). Isn't as hardy as I expected.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Full size in first year!
from Boulder, CO
A very handsome hyssop that grew to full size in the first year. Has a strikingly compact and upright habit, with great blooming June to October. Soft rose color is different than many hyssops.

The color was perfect in my garden. It was a real treat watching the hummingbirds discover the sweet nectar.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
