: I have agastache plants in my garden that are seven/eight feet tall. They are white and the leaves are not too pungent at all. I won't trim them, although they are rather ugly, until they bloom. Has anyone ever seen this type of agastache??

Hi Eva,
Oooh, you're so lucky! I did a search at www.google.com and put in quotes with a plus sign like this: "agastache" + "giant" + "white" and got over 2700 hits. Here's a site that names several different varieties, though I suspect yours is Agastache urticifolia alba. You could also search google with that name IN QUOTES as well.

They will bloom more profusely, over an even longer period of time, if the flowering stems are cut back in midseason. You could also plant something smaller in front if it that blooms earlier or later to hide the lower foilage and have a 'step down' look.

Hope this helps,
Newt
