Agastache

Hummingbird Mint

Agastache, or 'hummingbird mint' is a slow growing fragrant perennial herb that produces flower spikes in shades of yellow, orange, red, pink, blue, or deep purple. The almond-shaped leaves cluster near the ground and some varieties have a frosted or powdered look. The orange to red flowers attract hummingbirds because of their trumpet shape, while the blue blossoms attract butterflies. When crushed, agastache foliage smells like a cross between mint and licorice.
