Hybridizer is Roger Bastin. A. 'Linda' is named after his wife Linda. Roger and Linda Bastin have an excellent nursery very very close to my home town. Their nursery is Dutch Collection Holder of the genus Salvia, Lavandula, Santolina, Rosmarinus and Thymus. Agastache 'Linda' is selected from seedlings of A. rugosa x A. rupestris. Agastache 'Linda' has dark brown stems and flowers in violet pinks with sometimes a slight orange shining through. Very pretty.
