Tango Hummingbird Mint Customer Reviews
Wonderful unique mint aroma, lovelly orange flowerReview by Mary Haynes - Lexington, KY Posted on 2014-09-02 16:18:53
This mint is tasty and will be great in tea and recipes once it gets large enough. Just planted this spring and our summer has been too wet and cloudy for some plants to grow big. It was a bit slow to grow until I moved it to a sunnier spot between my Blue Wonder Aster and short purple sage, where its orange flowers compliment those colors. I don't see any blue in it yet, maybe next year?
A unique addition to any landscape border, Tango Hummingbird Mint will not only bring lively color into your garden but also beautiful dancing hummingbirds, butterflies and honeybees for you to enjoy. The wonderfully aromatic Agastache Aurantiaca Tango plant is abundant with striking and attractive flowers. These fiery orange flowers take the shape of distinctive spikes with long tubular blooms that are accented with a hint of blue. This interesting color balance makes for a perfectly fitting choice for the Agastache Hummingbird Mint's midsummer to fall flowering date. Grey-green leaves in an ovate to lance shape also make up the subtle foliage.
To plant the Agastache Tango, set at the same level as it is in the container, firm soil, and water thoroughly. Plant in a place with full exposure to the sun in order to maintain ideal growth conditions. The plant grows at a moderate rate to a height of about 12 to 18 inches with an estimated spread of 12 to 15 inches to make for a convenient but powerful addition to your garden. Our Tango Agastache Hummingbird Mint is also drought tolerant and very easy to grow. It is suitable for any type of garden soil and there is no pruning required except to remove spent flower stems.
