Also known as agastache, lavender hyssop, and licorice mint, this heirloom, native to midwestern U.S. is loved by hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies. With a minty, anise/licorice flavor, it is as useful in the kitchen as it is beautiful. The leaves and flowers make a refreshing, fruity tea, and can be added to salads. The lavender-blue flower spikes are lovely in fresh floral arrangements or dried bouquets. Perennial in USDA zones 4-8. Fairly drought tolerant once established. Deer resistant.

When to sow outside: 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is 60°-75°F. May also be sown in late fall for spring germination.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED.

4 to 6 weeks before your average last frost date.

Special germination instructions: Light aids germination; press seed lightly into soil surface. Seeds benefit from stratification ( a moist, cold period) prior to germination (see inside packet).
