Agastache Meant to Bee 'Queen Nectarine' has soft peach flowers with mauve calyxes on tall three foot stems.
Agastache Meant to Bee 'Queen Nectarine' is a stunning hummingbird mint with size and presence growing up to three feet tall with soft peach flowers with mauve calyxes cover two thirds of the stems. Great in the mid border! The two-tone effect attracts both humans and pollinators alike from mid June through September. The foliage has an aromatic, herbal scent and forms tidy, compact, ball-shaped clumps more densely structured than other cultivars. The flowers and foliage are edible. Grow this hummingbird mint in hot, dry, sunny spots with thin, rocky soils for best overwintering, the kinds of places where you never get around to spreading compost.
