Hyssop, Giant Yellow (Agastache nepetoides) packet of 30 seeds, Organic
Family: Mint (Lamiaceae)
Hardy to Zones 2 to 8
Herbaceous perennial to 7 feet or so, native to eastern north america. Excellent tea herb and one of the nicest flowers among all the Agastaches, unusual in that it is yellow. Wildlife and pollinator attractor tends to create a dense monotypic stand that stays put. Scarify seed lightly on fine sandpaper, then surface sow, cover with 1/8 inch of soil, tamp securely and keep evenly moist until germination, which is rapid. Transplant or thin to 2 feet apart. Flowers occur starting in the first year.
