A beautiful bee and butterfly magnet
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.
