Anise Hyssop (Agastache foeniculum)  Herb seds

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.

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.

Herb Usage

It is used for both culinary and medicinal purposes, and it is particularly used as a cure for hangovers. Used in extensively in Chinese medicine, and makes a pleasant tea.

The leaves can be added to drinks or salads or used to flavour pork and other meat dishes, and they can be stored by drying.
