Agastache

 
     
 
Anise Hyssop is a half-hardy perennial native to North America. It is a handsome, erect-growing plant that can reach a height of 4 feet. It has many branches and they are terminated with short spikes of violet-blue flowers. This is a good landscape and bee plant. Its fragrant, anise scented foliage may be used for teas and seasoning.

POTTING
Anise Hyssop is heat resistant and easy to grow. Give it well drained, but not dry soil. This plant will bloom from late summer to autumn. Try the lovely fresh flowers as a garnish on fruit or desserts. Harvest branch tips as needed for fresh use. To dry, harvest the whole plant at the early bloom stage.

PROPAGATION
You can use seeds or purchase plants to propagate Anise Hyssop. Start seeds indoors, 6 to 8 weeks before the spring frost-free date. Transplant them to a sunny spot when the soil is warm.
