Very short, compact, and hardy, Agastache 'Kudos Silver Blue' is a small Hummingbird Mint, which forms a low mound of refined, deep green foliage, bearing plump spikes of soft, clear light blue 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 Silver Blue' belongs to the Kudos Series, which is noted for its dwarf, well branched Agastaches that are hardy and nearly impervious to downy mildew.
