Anise Hyssop (Agastache foeniculum)  Herb seeds

Agastache foeniculum or Anise Hyssop shows large, bold spikes of light purple flowers, and these bracts are on display all summer, making it a good long flowering border herb. A beautiful and robust herb with anise scented leaves, this perennial herb can grow to 90cm, and will tolerate very chilly temperatures, even as low as -6'C, although young plants need frost protection until they are established. Cut the plants back by 1/3 after flowering to promote new growth.

Anise Hyssop is an excellent herb for bee keepers as it is an especially rich source of nectar during flowering, and it is also attractive to birds and butterflies.

Prefers rich moist soil in full sun.
