Agastache 'Bolero' (Hummingbird Mint)

Hyssop 'Bolero', Anise Hyssop 'Bolero', Hummingbird Mint 'Bolero'


Compact, and hardy, Agastache 'Bolero' is a small Hummingbird Mint, which forms a low mound of bronzy green foliage, bearing spikes of vivid rose purple plumes from midsummer until fall. Blooming continuously weeks after weeks, they provide a bold visual impact in beds, borders or containers and hummingbirds feast on them. Delicate-looking but fast growing, this pretty Agastache thrives in dry soils and is right at home in rock gardens too.

  • Grows up to 16 in. tall and wide (40 cm). The aromatic leaves exude a minty scent when crushed.
  • Attracts streams of hummingbirds, butterflies and other beneficial pollinators.
  • Easily grown in full sun, in average, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils. Good drainage is particularly important. Drought tolerant once established.
  • Generally disease and pest free and resistant to deer and rabbits
