Very short, compact, and hardy, Agastache 'Kudos Gold' is a small Hummingbird Mint, which forms a low mound bearing large, dense spikes of cheerful, golden-yellow plumes from early summer until fall. Blooming continuously weeks after weeks, they provide long lasting, glowing color in beds, borders or containers and hummingbirds feast on them. Delicate-looking but fast growing, this pretty Agastache is among the best of all hardy perennials for attracting pollinating insects.
'Kudos Gold' belongs to the Kudos Series, which is noted for its dwarf, well branched Agastaches that are hardy and nearly impervious to downy mildew.
