I'm hoping that someday that Agastache 'Kolibri' makes it way over from Europe to the U.S. and becomes available on a yearly basis. I'd love to grow this beauty in my garden. Another long blooming and winner of an Agastache. Even if it didn't overwinter in my garden, I'd be happy growing it as a tender perennial during the summer and attracting the pollinators.
