Agastache foeniculum, Anise Hyssop

Anise Hyssop in late evening shade

The shortest of the Giant Hyssops at 3 to 4 feet tall, this long-blooming perennial is a beenanza for pollinators; with lovely scented leaves for the people in its life. It's also a carefree prairie, savanna, and woodland edge plant that will do just as well in a home garden or border. May self-seed -not an entirely undesirable trait! I often recommend this one.

Blooms: lavender-blue purple, June into October

Height: 3 to 4 feet

Conditions: sun to pt shade, medium to medium-dry soils
