AGASTACHE 'Summer Love' PPAF
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Another beautiful introduction from Terra Nova Nurseries, the long blooming Summer love agastache provides a great contrast in form and color when combined with the classic black-eyed Susan. Hummingbirds, butterflies and bees find hard to resist this long-blooming hybrid hyssop. A clump-forming herbaceous perennial, it produces narrow, dense spikes of large, bright purple-pink, tubular flowers from summer through frost. Like most members of the mint family, it has fragrant bright green foliage, which smells of anise when crushed.
Full sun is required for best flowering and good performance. Summer love hyssop can be grown in average to dry garden soil, but a well-draining, fertile, alkaline loam will allow it to reach its best. Beware wet, heavy clay soils as these will cause plants to rot, particularly in wet winter weather. Keep spent blooms trimmed to prevent reseeding or leave them on for the goldfinch to enjoy. This is an ideal plant for any sunny perennial border, wildflower or butterfly garden.
