- Spikes of Lavender Rose Flowers
- Blooms Late Summer Through Fall
- Licorice Fragrance When Crushed
Hyssop Sinning Sonoran Sunset, Agastache canna ‘Sinning Sonoran Sunset™’ (PP#13,673), is a new compact selection that is far superior to the species.
The large lavender-rose flowers of ‘Sinning Sonoran Sunset™’ are very showy and add a different shade to the color palette.
Also known as Hummingbird Mint, it blooms from summer through fall and hardy to zone 5! The foliage smells distinctly like black licorice when crushed, thus its common name, Anise Hyssop.
If you’d like to restrict the height of this tall perennial, pinch back its blue-green foliage in spring before the flower buds are formed.
Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade, but best in full sun. Also tolerates drought and poor soils. Somewhat tolerant of summer heat and humidity.
One of the easiest and most rewarding perennials to grow, this award winning ‘Sinning Sonoran Sunset’ is a tremendously long bloomer.
It is useful for adding a spot of color to the garden late in the season when many other plants are finished.
