Lamiaceae

Botanical Name

AGASTACHE 'Tutti-frutti'

Plant Common Name

Hybrid Hyssop, Tutti-frutti Hyssop

General Description

This vigorous hybrid hyssop is a tall, strongly aromatic, drought tolerant perennial. Throughout the heat of summer it bears loose spikes of rose-pink tubular flowers that contrast nicely with its gray-green foliage. These require minimal deadheading and are attractive to hummingbirds.

Tolerant of poor soils and high heat, this plant requires full sun and limited supplemental water once established. Tutti-frutti hyssop is an excellent perennial for sunny mixed borders and hummingbird gardens.
