Agastache rupestris(Licorice Mint)
Here is a reliable perennial for us that blooms in the late summer during the peak of the southward
migration. This is not only a good plant for the hummingbirds, but we also enjoy the
licorice aroma when we brush against the plant. This plant does not garner as much attention
from the hummers as Salvia guaranitica or Monarda, but it does receive a moderate amount
of use during the fall migration. Agastache is widely available from mail order nurseries
or local nurseries.
