A bushy, aromatic perennial that forms a mass of red-purple flowers. It grows up to 70 cm in height. The stems are straight, weakly branched. Triangular, dark green leaves with crenate or serrate margins and covered with fine hairs and glands. Spiky inflorescences grow on the tops of stems and leaf angles in June. The reddish purple flowers, small and double-lipped, are collected in multifloral whorls. At the stem tops the flowers are arranged very densely, in the lower parts they are arranged more loosely. The plant blooms until the end of the summer, attracting numerous pollinating insects when flowering.
Agastache prefers fertile, permeable, moderately moist and slightly acidic soils. Requires sunny locations. Healthy variety, frost resistant (zone 6).
Perennial recommended for planting individually in flower beds, in groups and for growing in containers placed on sunny balconies and terraces.
