Sonoran Sunset Hyssop #mosquitoplants
(Hyssop) SONORAN SUNSET™ Agastache is a new compact selection that is far superior to the species. The large lavender-rose flowers of SONORAN SUNSET™ are very showy and bloom from summer through fall. Hardy to zone 5! Some say it smells like licorice, others think it smell like mint. Whatever the smell is, the butterflies and hummingbirds will think the party is in your garden. SONORAN SUNSET™ Agastache is sometimes referred to as a mosquito plant. It is said that by rubbing the leaves on the skin, the essential oils will repel mosquitos. Planted in the sun, SONORAN SUNSET™ Agastache will thrive in average soil and tolerate the heat and humidity of summer. No worry about deer or rabbits, they are not fond of the minty taste.
