Noted for its unique coloration and more compact form, this is a sturdy variety that won't flop over in the wind and rain. Plant in mixed borders or cutting gardens for a real treat in summer and fall. Ideal bloom for dried flower bouquets or arrangements. Easy to grow and deer resistant. Agastache rugosa 'Little Adder'
