Anise Hyssop

Agastache foeniculum. Its gray-green leaves invite your touch as you pass it in the garden! Known as Anise Hyssop, yet not a Hyssop at all, this aromatic perennial has been grown for hundreds of years, strictly for its scent and appealing symmetry. Easily grown, Anise Hyssop may be started indoors 6 to 8 weeks prior to transplanting outside after the last spring frost date, or it may be direct-sown after the last possible frost date. This herb is not fussy about soil and needs no fertilizer. The scent is strongly licorice with a touch of Mint - thus its nickname Licorice Mint. Seedlings grow up to 36" tall; pinch to encourage bushiness. In summer, Anise Hyssop produces purple spikes of compound florets, loved by beneficial insects. This outstanding ornamental sometimes self-sows - we're sure it will be welcome. Perennial. Hardiness zones: 4-11. (OP.)

Average seed life: 1 year
