Rosie Posie Anise Hyssop
The Longest Blooming Ever!
Simply the most colorful, best behaved, and absolutely the longest-blooming Hummingbird Mint we have ever grown! 'Rosie Posie' is a delight, with two-tone flowers that keep coming from early summer through the first part of fall, mint-scented foliage, and a refined habit that keeps the plant neat and presentable. A fantastic improvement over older varieties!
'Rosie Posie' is dense and compact, with a nicely rounded habit that always looks good -- unlike the big sprawling, loose-stemmed varieties of the past. The blooms are held right at the tips of the stems, for maximum effectiveness, and they sport a good-looking two-tone cast, thanks to deep purple calyces surrounding the hot pink flowers.
Expect the blooms to begin in early summer and continue all season, right through into fall! For those of us who love Agastache, the one complaint we all share is that there simply isn't enough of it (though the fragrant foliage does make up for a lot!). Well, 'Rosie Posie' puts an end to all that -- these flowers keep coming right into fall! There's never been a variety to equal it!
'Rosie Posie' reaches 22 inches high and 32 inches wide, thriving in full sunshine and any decently drained soil. It is a snap to grow, looks great everywhere from the cottage garden to the vegetable patch, and smells like heaven on a warm summer day. Add this perennial to your garden this season for years of beauty and scent to follow! Zones 4-9.
