Salvias and Agastaches are favorites in my garden. They are not only ornamental, but also highly beneficial. Here are three reasons, aside from their stunning and abundant beauty, to grow Salvias and Agastaches in your garden.

I too love agastaches!!! I have 5 of the melon colored and 2 of the pink
They practically glow from a distant and are still in bloom now. I'm in Massachusetts and these are so beautiful. The bees love them and now I want some blue and purple ones. These are my favorite plant

I've tried the melon ones but haven't had luck with them surviving, due to a fairly wet yard. Sad They sure are pretty!

I've noticed that they do well on the dry side so this summer was perfect for them because of our drought. They are still in bloom now and I won't cut them back until spring. My favorites. I will send pic.
