What is Agastache
Agastache (scientific name: Agastache spp.) is a cold-tolerant evergreen perennial plant in the family Lamiaceae, which is native to North and Central America. It is a horticultural variety of anise hyssop (A. foeniculum). The stem is upright from the base. It produces small flowers in the spring and summer with spike inflorescences. The basic color is orange, but there are also red, purple, and yellow. The flowers are long-lasting, so they can be planted in the garden, and the leaves have a refreshing fragrance, so they can be dried and used for potpourri and dried flowers. Varieties include the orange-flowered (A. aurantiaca), the rocky rupestris (A. rupestris), the white-flowered (A. nepetoides), the peachy (A. urticifolia), the pale purple (A. foeniculum), and the high and purple blackadder.
