Agastache 'Bolero' is a hardy plant with a long flowering period. Its foliage has a strong mint - anise fragrance with masses of magenta pink flowers of the same fragrance. Ideal for providing long lasting colour as a dry garden plant which attracts birds, bees and beneficial insects. Agastache need water to establish, then only if rainfall is low.
