Apricot Sprite Agastache

Agastache aurantiaca 'Apricot Sprite'

Highly attractive to hummingbirds, with aromatic foliage that resists grazing by deer and rabbits, this showy, water-wise perennial is perfect for rock gardens and open meadows. Loose spikes of fragrant, tubular apricot colored flowers on a dwarf form make it useful for mixed borders and containers.
