Well, what you just have been looking at is an agastache plant and it has some wonderful bees on it. I’m Dave Epstein. This is of course Growing Wisdom. And I am showing you this plant because maybe you’ve heard that some of the bees across parts of the country have been having some troubles. So I figure, hey this little plant here helps them out. They absolutely love it. And it does attract bees to the garden. It is a great plant because it gets fairly tall as well. Some of the tags say that it gets to be about three feet but mine tend to be four to five feet tall. It loves full to part sun, does well in general soil. You know, I don’t really do much for this particular soil. And in terms of where to put it, you can put it in the back of the garden or in the middle and surround it with a couple of different choices. You know, we’ve got some grasses that are near it which looks very nice. We also have another area of the garden with another one of these plants which has some cardinal flower next to it. And I love the red and the blue purple, it also looks great. It also looks great with joe-pye weed because the two purples and the different textures look very nice as well. But the main reason I have it is certainly for the bees. I just love coming out here and seeing the bees, I figured they are pretty happy. Hope you’re happy to watching this edition of Growing Wisdom.
