Firebird can take the heat! Fiery copper orange/coral blooms flower until frost, embellishing the aromatic gray-green foliage. Tubular flowers in whorls on salvia-like spikes will entice butterflies and hummingbirds to sample the nectar rich blooms.

Mint-scented leaves may be added fresh or dry to enhance your favorite tea. Cut back flower stems in summer to promote continuous bloom. A nice feature in an herb garden or mixed border. Plant Select® varieties are durable, resilient and vibrant.

Agastache General Information

Agastache are equally good in the border and as a candidate for container growing. The better the drainage, the happier the plant. Scented foliage is good for flavoring drinks and drying. A customer advises us that her Goldfinches are wild for Agastache seed.

Agastache Plant Care

Good drainage is a must! Agastache thrive in full sun and rarely need divided. Most will self sow to spread, so deadhead by removing faded flowers to prevent seeding. Leave stems to overwinter; tip or remove new growth in early to mid spring for more flowering stems and a more compact plant. To promote strong stems, avoid too much water once established and fertilize only once every year or two in late fall to late winter.
