Agastache ‘Kudos Gold’
Exhibits all the same great traits of the other KUDOS™ members, but adds a gold color to the series. Forming a full mound, 'Kudos Gold' shows like no other Agastache before and rounds out the KUDOS™ family nicely. Foliage is a medium mint green color and has the characteristic honey-licorice-mint scent.
