‘Tango’ Agastache (Agastache aurantiaca) is a compact, cold hardy, native hybrid perennial that blooms all season long. This dwarf variety features a profusion of bright orange flower with hints of pale purple, and exotic-looking nectar rich flowers attract hummingbirds and bumblebees. Both the flowers and foliage have a strong minty scent when touched, and aromatic foliage helps to deter deer and rabbits. Also known as Hummingbird Mint or Hyssop.
