(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!

What are the pros? Aesthetic, Fragrant, Tasty

What are the cons? Slightly leggy vegetation

Review:

I planted these seeds in my greenhouse for my mother-in-law because she likes licorice. The leaves are very fragrant and the flowers are both fragrant and mildly sweet. I might try putting the flowers in a salad with blue cheese and a sweeter style dressing. The plants like to sprawl a little bit, which is okay. Once the flowers are mostly dead you can pinch below the flower at the leaf/stem joint (like you would a basil) to get new stems to grow. This plant is watered every 3 days, but sometimes when I'm lazy (or forgetful) then it may go about 5 days without issue. Mine are located where they get dappled sunlight, otherwise they might flower more.

Review:

I bought this on a whim not really knowing what to expect. The seeds germinated easily and the plant grew fairly quickly. It bloomed the first year. It's now in its second year of growth and is at least four feet tall. It has a sweet anise fragrance and fits perfectly in a flower bed. It flowers beautifully and the bumblebees absolutely love it!

What are the pros? Subtle licorice scent

What are the cons?

Review:

Sprouted easily and quickly became established. Tall spikes of purple flowers have very light licorice scent unless bruised. Grew in part shade location last summer and have been rewarded with many volunteers this spring.

What are the pros? wonderful smell, long lasting

What are the cons? not sure how to use

Review:

I bought about eight herb varieties last year and this had to be my favorite. It has a very deep aroma which is unmistakably anise, and the plant is hardy and pretty. It is still early spring and the plant is the first I have seen growing back of my herbs, and they already smell wonderful. My only problem is that I am not sure how to use them. I might make tea this year, but that's about it. I wouldn't want such a strong licorice taste in my salad.

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.
