Lavender Hyssop
(Agastache foeniculum)

This beautiful, fragrant flower makes a wonderful addition to herb gardens, perennial borders, and wildflower areas. Place a pot of Agastache on porches and patios where its fragrance can be fully appreciated. Flowers are lavender to purple and completely edible.

Agastache needs a fertile, well-drained soil, and although it will tolerate light shade, it will do best with lots of sun. Sow seeds in spring after all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed a bit. Cover with 1/8 inch of soil and water sparingly once established. This plant will do very well in a dry climate.
