The Incredible Butterfly Magnet Anise Hyssop

  • Lovely, Lavender Blue Flowers
  • Absolutely Adored by Butterflies
  • Sweet Fragrant Leaves
  • Easy to Care for

Do you want your landscape to be in harmony with nature? Are you looking for water-wise plants that feed butterflies, hummingbirds and a huge variety of beneficial pollinators? Looking to add easy-care, edible plants to your front yard landscape?

The Anise Hyssop (Agastache foeniculum) gives you all that and more. Lovely, showy, lavender blue flower spires bloom all summer. It will fill in to create a marvelous showing with very little extra care on your part.

Anise reaches a mature height of 3 to 4 feet, spread 2 to 3 feet wide. They do best in full to partial sun exposure, in well-drained soils.

This wonderful herbaceous perennial isn't just pretty to look at! It's also useful in the kitchen. Fragrant leaves smell like a candy cane and kiss a licorice stick. It is also known as an antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory plant. You might try drying sprigs for use in healthy potpourri that doesn't contain man made chemicals.

Once the dark green leaves are dried and steeped, they also make a delicious, refreshing tea - either hot or iced. It's fun to use the edible flowers either fresh or dried to flavor fruit salad, pasta salad and infuse with water.

You won't see this selection in every garden center. It's a vigorous grower, and some states it does a little too well. Luckily, Nature Hills uses Plant Sentry™ to protect you and your community from invasive plants. Consider planting this in large containers if you want to control the spread. What a gorgeous plant!

You'll love this fragrant selection. Place your order today!
