Description

Exceptionally long-flowering aromatic hyssop, lovely as a front of border garden plant, edible and cut flower.

We grow ours to decorate a corner growing with tarragon and harvest the flowers to jolly up drinks, puddings and salads.

Care Tips

Agastache prefers sunny free-draining soil but tolerates almost any soil and will cope with dry shade. They do not require extra feeding - this will only encourage leggy growth.
