Agastache 'Kudos® Red' PPAF
Missing from the agastache lineup has always been a really great red. 'Kudos Red' fixes that problem and is an exciting win for hummingbirds. This selection of Agastache aurantiaca has smaller blue-green leaves with a silver blush. The scent is a mild licorice smell and only noticeable when brushed. The tubular blooms are up to 2" long and borne abundantly on large flowering heads. A strong performer in the garden and in the pot. Loved by butterflies, bees, and hummers. Deer and rabbits seem to leave them alone. A drought tolerant perennial when established.
