If you are searching for warm-colored flowers for months on end, then Kudos™ Mandarin Hummingbird Mint could just be what you are after. Agastache 'Kudos Mandarin' produces stunning spikes of tubular orange blooms from June until the fall, which are simply adored by pollinators and hummingbirds. Even though it remains compact, this herbaceous perennial will add some serious impact to your borders and containers. As a drought-tolerant plant, you’ll be able to almost forget about this hummingbird mint over the summer.
Remaining untouched by deer, this perennial is a safe bet for rural spots. It is grown for its long-lasting, scented flowers, which sit perfectly above its mounds of green foliage. Kudos™ Mandarin Hummingbird Mint is a solid, reliable performer in any garden. With little care required, this Agastache is a great low-maintenance bloomer for planting en masse or individually.
Kudos™ Mandarin Hummingbird Mint Care
For the best blooms and a chance of surviving the winter, Kudos™ Mandarin Hummingbird Mint should be grown in full sun and in well-drained soil. Even though it is considered drought tolerant, this Agastache needs regular watering until it has established. Fertilizing this plant is not necessary and can even lead to leggy growth and reduced flowering. As a compact variety, Kudos™ Mandarin Hummingbird Mint will not need staking.
As the blooms fade over the season, they can be deadheaded to keep the plant looking tidy. When grown as a perennial, the top third can be pruned back after blooming to encourage new growth. In northern areas, any container-grown plants should be protected from cold weather and winter storms.
Kudos™ Mandarin Hummingbird Mint Spacing
Once established, Kudos™ Mandarin Hummingbird Mint can grow to 17-20 inches tall by 12-16 inches wide. For maximum impact, plant these in a group with at least 12-16 inches of space between plants.
