Plant Features

Imagine a cloudless summer sky captured in flower form, that's the magic of Summer Sky Agastache. This compact bushy perennial brings a touch of tranquility and elegance to your garden with its dense spikes of violet-blue blooms. The color, a true masterpiece of nature, is deeper and richer than most Agastache, offering a vibrant yet calming presence in your landscape.

Summer Sky isn't just visually arresting, its aromatic, mint-scented foliage adds a refreshing touch to the scene. This low-maintenance charmer thrives in full sun and well-drained soil, shrugging off heat and drought with the stoicism of a seasoned traveler. Deer and rabbits find its charms unpalatable, leaving your precious plants untouched.

This versatile beauty adds a touch of serenity to any scene. Picture it gracing the edges of your borders and beds, its sky-blue flowers echoing the summer twilight. Imagine it adding a whisper of elegance to your cottage garden, or bringing a calming accent to containers on your sun-drenched patio. For the culinary curious, its leaves offer a hint of licorice in teas and culinary creations.

Caring for Summer Sky is akin to basking in its serenity. Water deeply while young, then let its easygoing spirit take over. Deadheading encourages more blooms, and a light trim in late fall or early spring ensures its return year after year.

So, invite Summer Sky Agastache into your garden and let its azure hues paint your landscapes with tranquility. Watch as hummingbirds and butterflies dance among its blooms, their wings shimmering like diamonds against the twilight sky. This low-maintenance gem, with its pollinator-loving nature and timeless beauty, promises to be a breath of fresh air in your summer haven.
