Agastache 'Rosie Posie' PP25857

Anise Hyssop

This picture-perfect perennial naturally forms a ball-shaped clump of aromatic, bright green foliage topped with a profusion of hot pink and magenta flowers for several months. It attracts pollinators like a magnet but the minty foliage keeps four-legged creatures away. Excellent presentation in containers. Breeder: Walters Gardens

Pinch plants early for more compact growth and an improved flower display. Long lasting blooms provide an extended sales window. A favorite of bees, butterflies and hummingbirds; ideal for pollinator gardens.
