Family:  Mint (Lamiaceae)

Hardy to Zones 5 to 10

Woody perennial evergreen subshrub native to the mediterranean and one of the more northern hardy of the mediterranean plants.  This is a classic herb used in knot gardens and for low hedging.  Can be readily shaped and is quite lovely in flower.  The aroma of the flowers, either fresh or dried, is completely unique and one of the best of all herbal aromas.  Traditional usage (TWM): common cold.  Plant prefers full sun and regular garden soils, excellent drainage.  Sow seed in spring in flats.  Scarify seed lightly on fine sandpaper.  Barely cover seed, tamp well, and keep evenly moist, warm and in the light until germination, which takes 7 to 10 days.   Transplant to pots after second set of true leaves appears.  Within a few weeks the seedling will have grown sufficiently to transplant out to the garden.  May also be direct seeded in a fine seedbed or nursery bed.  Thin or transplant to 2 to 3 feet apart.  Flowers to 3 feet tall.  Cut back in fall to limit snow damage and maintain a nice mounded shape.

      Hello Susan,
      No, you might be thinking of Anise Hyssop in the genus Agastache. We do carry that, also, under the name of Mint, Licorice.
