Agastache POQUITO™ Butter Yellow

Showy dense heads of butter yellow flowers from spring to fall. With its low, compact, bushy habit, POQUITO™ Butter Yellow make a great border perennial, container color spot, or use in mixed beds. Great pollinator plant and drought tolerant once established.

Received the “Classic City Award” from the Trial Gardens at UGA September 20, 2019. This prestigious award was given to the top 13 varieties in the trial gardens, as determined by the trial gardens' staff, based on year-round performance and eye-catching beauty.

“'Butter Yellow' brought it's 'A' game to the garden with showy strong yellow flower spikes,” according to UGA trial gardens' staff. “While many hyssops tend to blend into their surroundings due to wispy stems and leaves, this plant did not. Despite it being the shortest of the seven cultivars we trialed this year, 'Butter Yellow' stood out from the rest of the cultivars due to its bold visual appeal.”
