(A. rugosum x A. foeniculum) Agastache 'Black Adder' is a real trouper in our low-water border, which blooms non-stop until autumn. Violet-blue flowers emerge from very dark (almost black) buds in dense, 4-inch long spikes. They are a great way to attract bees into the garden. The mid-green lance-shaped foliage is highly aromatic, making it attractive to gardeners but not to deer.

July to October.  36 in. x 30 in.

Violet Blue flowers

Sun     Zones 6, 7, 8, 9
Agastache `Black Adder' also does well as part of a container planting, adding a vertical element with a long bloom time. Selected as a Great Plant Pick for Northwest Gardeners by the Elisabeth C. Miller Botanical Garden.
