Very heat tolerant.

Few sights compare to a fully-blooming Coronado®in the sunny late-season garden, its blooms radiant orange-yellow, its peppermint-scented foliage tossing silvery glints, and its habit neat and compact. The longest-blooming member of its family, it demonstrates superb heat tolerance, attracting butterflies and hummingbirds as it flowers through the worst August weather.

Just 15 to 20 inches high and up to 20 inches wide, this adaptable perennial is one of the easiest and most rewarding to grow in any sun-soaked setting. The foliage releases its scent when touched, so plant Coronado® where you will brush past it along pathways, at the front of the border, and in containers on the patio. And the blooms are superb for cutting as well as garden enjoyment. Very resistant to diseases, pests, humidity, poor soil, and even a bit of drought, Coronado® belongs in meadow gardens as well as in the landscape of any southern and southwestern garden! And if you love Agastache as we do, please consider Agastache aurantiaca as well. Zones 4-9.
