Peachie Keen Hummingbird Mint
So compact and so colorful, you'll hardly recognize these two new selections as Agastache! They form dense, rounded plants with myriad flower spikes right at the top of the foliage, so the color impact is huge, and the garden presence is neat and compact. They'll look great for months, not only from the bright blooms of summer, but also from the richly hued calyxes that stay colorful through fall! Blessed with aromatic foliage and an easy-going nature, they tolerate heat, drought, even poor soil, as long as it is well-drained. And butterflies and hummingbirds love them! Zones 6-9. Full Sun. Deer tend to avoid. Ships in 3" Pot.

- Unique CharactersticsPerennial Resource: 'Peachie Keen' bears loads of apricot peach flowers with complementary purplish pink calyxes just at the top of the foliage for a neatly proportional look. Because the calyxes are so colorful, this plant continues to look like it is blooming long after it is finished. In northern zones, it typically blooms from midsummer through early fall but in southern zones it starts blooming much earlier. The aromatic, bright green foliage grows into a densely compact, ball-shaped clump, much more refined looking than older cultivars.This is one of the easiest perennials to grow; it is drought tolerant, deer resistant, and attracts butterflies and hummingbirds like crazy.
