Agastache foeniculum - Anise hyssop
Agastache foeniculum is a long blooming native perennial growing between 2-4' tall. It loves full sun and average, well drained soil but will tolerate part shade and drought. The bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds love the purple flowers which appear between June and September. A. foeniculum will readily self-sow in your garden. The fragrant leaves possess medicinal properties and can be enjoyed steeped for tea. This plant is an absolute show-stopper and the deer don't eat it. Zone 4-8.
