The Agastache 'After Eight' cultivar is the pleasantly surprising result of the cross-pollination of Agastache rugosa x Agastache foeniculum: a compact habit, profuse flowering with long blue-purple spikes, and a licorice / mint scent with a hint of fennel!
In the garden use it as an edging plant or in the middle of a mixed border to accompany other blue-purple flowering perennials. It can be twinned with Achillea 'Moonshine'.
Grow in the sun in good garden soil, not too dry (this can be tricky!) and well-drained in the winter.
