(Agastache ‘Tutti Frutti’)
ag-ah-STAK-ee
Genus:  Agastache

This is an erect, bushy perennial with scented gray-green leaves. Its raspberry-red flowers grow on loose, foot-long spikes from midsummer to late fall. The flower spikes have a long bloom period and attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and other insects.  

Care: 

Well-drained, fertile soil in full sun. In warmer areas, less hardy species should overwinter in a protected location. May be grown as annuals.

Propagation: 

Sow seed at 55° F to 64° F in early spring. Divide in spring. Root semi-ripe cuttings in late summer. Protect young plants where not hardy.

Problems: 

Mildew and rust in dry, hot weather. Some fungal diseases are possible.
