Agastache ‘Kudos Ambrosia’ (also known as Hummingbird Mint or Hyssop ‘Kudos Ambrosia’) is a delightful herbaceous perennial that forms a compact, bushy mound of aromatic, dark green leaves. From early summer until fall, it produces airy spikes of creamy coconut, pale orange, and light rose-pink flowers. These blooms continue for weeks, providing a bold visual impact in beds, borders, or containers. Notably, hummingbirds are drawn to this lovely plant, making it a great choice for attracting pollinators.

Here are some key features of Agastache ‘Kudos Ambrosia’:

  • Compact Growth: It grows to a height of 17-22 inches (42-55 cm) and spreads about 16 inches (40 cm) across.
  • Aromatic Leaves: When crushed, the leaves emit a minty scent.
  • Hardiness: This Agastache belongs to the Kudos Series, known for its dwarf, well-branched plants that are hardy and nearly impervious to downy mildew.
  • Sun and Soil: It thrives in full sun and prefers average, well-drained soils. Good drainage is essential.
  • Long Blooming Season: Agastache ‘Kudos Ambrosia’ provides color from early summer through fall, making it an excellent addition to the late-season garden.
  • Attracts Pollinators: Besides hummingbirds, it also attracts butterflies and other beneficial pollinators.
  • Low Maintenance: Generally disease and pest-free, although it may occasionally be subject to powdery mildew. It’s also resistant to deer and rabbits.
  • Propagation: You can propagate it by seed or division in spring.
  • Deadheading: To encourage additional blooms, deadhead spent flowers.

Overall, this pretty Agastache is among the best hardy perennials for both its beauty and its role in supporting pollinators.
