Agastache rugosa ‘Liquorice blue’

Blue anise hyssop

Agastache are a very important crop for honey production as they flower from mid to very late summer and supply an over-abundance of nectar. This helps bees 'stock up' for winter. 

A couple of plants in your garden would really help your neighbourhood pollinators. 

You will also benefit from these tall, aromatic plants that produce lovely lavender blue flowers until the first frosts. 

The sweet liquorice scented leaves can be made into tea or dropped into a Pimms. They are also long lasting cut flowers. 

Although naturally short lived, 'Liquorice Blue' self seeds with gay abandon so you should never be without these wonderful plants.
