(Agastache foeniculum) An extra sweet strain from Montana, this herb is used to make one of the best herb teas; the leaves possess a naturally sweet, wonderful anise taste & fragrance. Lovely purple flowers that the bees love, many uses and also reputed medicinal value too!

Review:

Started indoors from seed in 2014, transplanted to garden (full sun) after frost. Grew quite large by the end of the summer, producing lovely flowers that attract pollinators. Dried the leaves and flowers to make sweet licorice tasting tea. Left outside for the (long and cold) winter, but the plant survived and was one of the earliest shoots in the spring.

Review:

I'm fond of anise or fennel-like flavors, and so gave anise hyssop a try. The leaves have a mild anise flavor with a bit of bitterness (similar to the bitterness of many herbs, e.g. oregano). The flowers, however, have a wonderfully sweet and intense anise-like flavor. A real treat! Germination is similar to other mint-family herbs. I only got one plant from every four or five cells, but I'm a novice at starting herbs. The plants grew slowly at first, but have now grown to about 2 feet over the past five months in a warm climate. It may be perennial here, but I can't confirm that yet.

Review:

I direct sowed an entire pack of these in early spring 2013. They germinated well, grew fairly quickly and required little care (just mulching and occasional water during dry weather). They did well in sandy soil and full sun. The foliage is beautiful, very fragrant and makes a very delicious tea; the little dark purple flowers are also lovely. The plants overwintered well here in USDA zone 6b and, this spring, I was able to share with friends. I also moved a few of the plants to a different garden (one with part-time shade and a much heavier clay soil) and those plants are doing equally as well; Anise Hyssop doesn't seem to be terribly picky about where it grows! This herb has been one of the most worthwhile I have ever grown and there is no doubt that I will look forward to its arrival each spring.

What are the pros? Wonderful flavor, pretty plant

What are the cons? Short-lived (in my garden)

Review:

Perfect for tea, smells and tastes fabulous, a nice anise flavor. Lovely flowers, just like in the photo. Recommend a fairly dry or at least very well-drained area. My herb garden is fairly moist, and although other herbs such as oregano and thyme do well, my hyssop only lives for about two years and then dies back. It is still worth growing for me and I don't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. A great bee plant. Makes a fine perennial bedding plant as well as in the herb garden.
