I went a bit mad with the agastache in the bouquets. Agastache, I think also called Korean mint.
And it certainly has a very pungent odour. Pleaseant? I’m not sure.
But what I love about this plant is it is drought tolerant. I sowed them from seed a few years ago and did rather leave it to fend for itself.
So it takes shade, sun, neglect. What more could one want?
And the stems are very stiff, so they can be shoved into a vase with the floppier cosmos and marjoram and zinnia.
My zinnias are not a great success this year. For the simple reason that I didn’t stake them thoroughly when I planted them out. If I had a two inch high vase they would look a treat. But for this week, they have been relegated to the role of bouttoniere.
