Agastache – Golden Jubilee 2 litres
Agastache is often referred to as Giant Hyssop. With fragrant aromatic leaves this natural looking plant will help feed and are loved by butterflies and other pollinating insects alike – they seem irresistible to them. The flowers are very pretty and are produced in abundance, from late spring to summer. We grow 5 varieties(!) and are very relieved that they are now looked upon as a worthwhile perennial. As they are a member of the mint family they do not like the wet and prefer a dry patch. We bring our stock in to keep dry rather then warm – they behave much better when planted in the ground.
By the way – slugs don’t like the taste of any Agastache!
The leaf colour is a sharp contrasting Gold/Yellow. The flowers are pale mauve which appears brighter against the foliage, grows 1 ½ to 2 feet, we consider this a small variety. They are a member of the mint family and they do not like the wet and prefer a dry patch.
