Agastache ‘Morello’

Agastache x ‘Morello’

The dusty green and purple foliage of Agastache ‘Morello’ sets off incredibly large, burgundy-rose flower spikes that burst forth in spring. This cultivar exhibits a nice mounding habit and good mildew resistance. Agastache is extremely popular with pollinators and hummingbirds especially, hence the common name ‘Hummingbird Mint.’

I placed 3, 4″ pots in an open spot between salal shrubs, whose shiny bright green foliage contrasts nicely with the soft sage-like agastache leaves. As of this writing, they are just beginning to bloom, and I’m looking forward to the color blast coming as the summer progresses.
