Description

Agastache foeniculum (Anise Hyssop). This is an upright, clumping perennial with mauve flowers produced at intervals in a whorl-like pattern on a flowering spike. The leaves are oval, irregularly toothed and dark green with a white-ish underside. The flowers themselves are not fragrant, but the leaves are.
