How about a summer perennial with months of raspberry-coloured blooms that are a magnet for hummingbirds? You need Agastache!
Agastache are incredibly useful for clouds of colour through the summer months. 'Raspberry Summer' has massive numbers of densely clustered large raspberry-pink flowers with pink sepals that bloom all summer into fall. Up to three feet tall with bright green, fragrant foliage. The Summer Series have sepals that remain in colour and do not brown like other agastache giving these cultivars a much longer season of interest. Even without a single flower there is still colour! Sun, dry soil.
