AGASTACHE

Dependable, summer-blooming perennials with fragrant foliage. Upright stems packed with whorls of pink, purple, blue, red, or orange flowers make colorful additions to herb gardens and flower borders. Plants rebloom if deadheaded. Species from Mexico and the Southwest need excellent drainage, especially in wet-winter areas.

Agastache foeniculum

From northern U.S. and southern Canada. Erect, narrow plant, to 3 ft. tall and 2 ft. wide, with dense clusters of lilac blue flowers. Its anise- or licorice-scented leaves make a tasty tea. Useful and attractive in perennial borders and herb gardens. More tolerant of winter cold and wet than the other species.
