Agastache 'Purple Haze' is a pollinator magnet and valuable source of nectar. It is visited by Skippers, Fritillaries, and other butterflies.

It has special value to native, bumble, and honey bees, especially longhorned, bumble, small resin, and leafcutter bees. It also attracts beneficial insects such as bee flies and soldier beetles.

It is visited occasionally by hummingbirds.

Purple Haze isn't as visible in my yard as some other agastaches that I''ve grown. Individual blossoms are small and dainty. It's pretty and airy, but not noticeable unless you are close to the plant. The hummingbirds, however, find it easily .
