Plant Features

Imagine a flower that blooms with tireless abandon, attracting a vibrant chorus of hummingbirds and butterflies to your garden. Picture its compact form adding stunning pops of lavender-blue throughout the season, from late spring to the first blush of fall. This isn't a dream, it's the magic of the Little Adder Agastache, a perennial brimming with charm and effortless beauty.

Standing at just 15-18 inches tall, the Little Adder makes a captivating statement without demanding grand spaces. Its well-branched habit creates a lush, textured clump, ideal for adding depth to borders or filling smaller corners with vibrant life. But where this plant truly shines is in its blooms. Towering spikes of tubular flowers erupt in waves of lavender-blue, boasting three times the floral abundance of many other Agastache varieties. Deadheading encourages even more blooms, ensuring your garden stays abuzz with color and life throughout the season.

The Little Adder isn't just a feast for the eyes; it's a haven for pollinators. Hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees will flock to its nectar-rich blooms, adding a delightful symphony of wings to your garden's soundtrack. And the best part? This delightful performer is surprisingly low maintenance. Once established, it thrives in full sun with well-drained soil, requiring minimal watering even during dry spells. Its licorice-scented foliage adds a unique touch to your garden, deterring deer while attracting beneficial insects.

Come fall, simply cut back the stems and prepare for the Little Adder to grace your garden anew the following spring. With its compact size, long bloom time, and effortless charm, the Little Adder Agastache is a must-have for any gardener seeking a captivating, pollinator-pleasing addition to their outdoor haven. Bring home this floral wonder today and watch your garden transform into a vibrant stage for endless summer beauty.
