Long-blooming Native that Loves Dry Soil!

Delightful licorice fragrance.
For a seemingly endless show of color and scent in the sunny garden, you cannot improve upon 'Bolero.' This cultivar is a combination of native southwestern American species, bringing all the easy care and pest resistance of traditional Agastache into your garden in a new longer-blooming, boldly colored form.

The show begins in spring, when the new foliage emerges a deep shade of bronze. Licorice scented, it is very lush on compact plants. By midsummer the plants are topped with rosy-purple blooms that attract every honeybee, butterfly, and hummingbird in the neighborhood. Deer, slugs, and other nibblers leave this aromatic plant alone, and the blooms continue all the way into autumn. Magnificent!

Adaptable to dry soil, 'Bolero' craves only sunshine and good soil drainage to thrive for many years. Try it in the sunny border or along the driveway among Kniphofia and Sedum. A thoroughly delightful perennial you will treasure for seasons to come! Zones 5-10.

A beautiful bee and butterfly magnet
Sue T. from NJ wrote (November 17, 2013):
I planted three Agastache Bolero in mid-Spring 2013 in our long boeprder and watched the plants take off. They began flowering in early June and the flowers kept coming until I cut back the plants in mid-November. The contrasting coloring of blooms, foliage and stems is gorgeous. The flowers attract hordes of bees and butterflies al summer long. Pests like deer and slugs leave Bolero alone. This is one lovely and terrific plant.
