Agastache rupestrisAgastache rupestris  - Denver Botanic Gardens was likely the first public garden in the world to display this spectacular mint relative in 1995. It was launched by Plant Select in 1997 and has become a garden standard, burnishing bright auburn and buff paintbrush-like flowers for weeks in late summer and fall. This richly aromatic herb works well in xeriscapes.
