Large dense spikes of rich purplish pink tubular flowers are produced from spring to fall on this multiple award winning and highly rated perennial. Morello Agastache was selected for its dense, long lasting flower spikes, sturdy upright habit, and its exceptional vigor. This Agastache is a pollinator magnet that is well suited to the garden, landscape, and in containers. A heat and humidity tolerant perennial perfect for hot sunny locations with well-drained soils.

Provide Agastache with a full or near full sun location and allow the soil to become slightly dry between waterings. These are deer resistant plants with a long flowering season and are sure to attract any and all pollinators that can reach the nectar reward of its tubular flowers. Sharp drainage and good air circulation will help to ensure their longevity.
