The Herb of the Year 2019

 

This year it is Anise hyssop, Agastache ssp.  The Anise hyssop plant is a herbaceous perennial with blue flowers and fragrant foliage that can be used as an ornamental or in the herb garden.  The leaves and tiny flowers smell and taste of anise, however;  its square stems and opposite leavaes tell you it belongs to a different family entirely.  The Lamiaceae (Labiatae), or mint family.  Herb lovers claim it as a culinary specimen, using the fresh or dried leaves in tea and crumbling the tangy flowers over fruit salad.  The wildflower books list it as a native wildflower of north-central North America. Agastache 'Blue Fortune' is a tremendously long bloomer from mid-summer to early fall and is useful for adding a spot of color to the garden later in the season.  Plant in full sun and slightly alkaline soil.  The most critical factor is good drainage, this plant will NOT tolerate wet soil.  Grows 24-36 inches tall and can spread 18-24 inches.  Bees and butterflies enjoy the pollen and nectar over an extended period of the growing season. All of the herbs available this season can be found here in our on-line catalog.

 

Plant, grow and enjoy!
