Hyssop Raspberry Summer
Raspberries and Licorice
Hyssop Raspberry Summer, Agastache 'Raspberry Summer' PPAF, name originates from the Greek word aga, meaning "very much," and stachys, meaning "spikes," referring to the many flower spikes. It also commonly referred to as Hummingbird Mint.
As one of the easiest and most rewarding perennials to grow, this award winning 'Raspberry Summer' is a tremendously long bloomer.
'Raspberry Summer' PPAF is a stunning beauty that is adorned with raspberry pink tubular flowers that float above attractive, bright green, fragrant foliage from summer and into fall. The wonderfully fragrant foliage is deer resistant and forms attractive clumps.
Its foliage smells distinctly like black licorice when crushed, thus its common name, Anise Hyssop. If you'd like to restrict the height of this tall perennial, pinch back its blue-green foliage in spring before the flower buds are formed.
It prefers well-drained soil and needs full sun to light shade and dry to medium soil. Peak bloom occurs in midsummer and provides a real summer treat for hummingbirds and butterflies.
This wonderful raspberry pink 'Raspberry Summer' hyssop is useful for adding a spot of color to the garden late in the season, especially when many other plants begin to fade!
