Description / Arizona™ Sunset Hummingbird Mint Seeds

Finally, a hummingbird mint compact enough for patio containers, yet boasting all the color and scent of its full-sized cousins. Less than a foot high, this beautiful perennial is bursting with bicolor blooms and licorice-scented foliage.

Arizona Sunset is a pollinator magnet, bringing in butterflies and bees as well as the hummingbirds that give this perennial its common name. They begin as soon as the first flowers open in midsummer—softly colored, tubular, and boasting lavender shades with pops of peach. If they're this eye-catching to humans, imagine what the winged crowd thinks.

The blooms last into fall in most climates, and it's hard to mourn them when they pass, because the foliage has a strong, evocative licorice-mint scent that's just heavenly on a warm summer day. Brush past Arizona Sunset and you will be rewarded with fragrance.

Reaching just 8 to 10 inches high and wide, this hyssop is small enough for containers, and makes an excellent companion to unscented plants of all kinds. Its long, slender stems and tubular blooms pair well with daisy-shaped flowers from gaillardia to gazania, and its upright, arching habit is a good contrast for mounding petunias and layered geraniums. In the border or container, Arizona Sunset shows off.

And it's so easy to grow. Start the seeds indoors, transplant when the spring soil warms up, and it will even bloom for you the first year. Arizona Sunset loves heat, needs good soil drainage, and doesn't mind wet, cold, or even drought. Deer and other nibbling animals tend to leave it alone, thanks to the scented foliage. It's very low maintenance, and will thrive happily for years, bringing pollinators on the wing all season long. Highly recommended.

Beautiful, fragrant , compact plants!
Review by Dave
Excellent germination. These plants were quickly blooming, even before I could put them out in the garden and they continued all summer with the beautiful contrasting bloom colors. Wonderfully fragrant, attracted pollinators. Some powdery mildew in the fall but overall fantastic plants!

Review by Dave MO
I love agastache in the landscape and this variety was perfect for a border and beautiful. It flowered continuously all summer. Excellent seed germination, which is what I have come to appreciate Park Seed for over other online seed companies.
