This is the average amount of sunlight that a plant needs to thrive.

Plants may tolerate more sunlight in cooler climates and need afternoon shade in extremely hot climates.
Full sun
Soil type
This is the kind of soil that a plant needs to thrive. Most plants require a well-drained soil that allows the water to soak into the soil without becoming soggy. Sandy and clay soils can be improved by digging in compost to improve drainage.
Well drained
Water needs
Plants have specific water requirements. Water loving means the plant needs regular watering to keep the soil moist.

(Kudos Yellow Hybrid Anise Hyssop) Flowers by the Sea is one of the first nurseries nationwide to grow Agastache x 'Kudos Yellow'. This is one of the best deep yellow Agastaches we've found, due to its large, dense flower spikes and bushy, upright form.

Kudos Yellow Hybrid Anise Hyssop is long blooming. It has lance-shaped, mid-green leaves and green calyxes that don't turn brown when the flowers die. As its common name implies, this sage has a licorice-like fragrance.

Most Agastaches are Southwestern and Mexican types known for resisting heat and drought. Cross these species with the Asian Agastache rugosa -- as Oregon's Terra Nova Nurseries has done in its Kudos series -- and you get vigorous, cold tolerant varieties that can handle more moisture. This one also has good resistance to downy mildew.

Kudos Yellow is made for full sun. Similar to so many members of the mint family (Lamiaceae) -- such as sages -- it thrives in low-fertility soils, but needs excellent drainage. It is an ideal companion plant for sages and a beneficial choice for attracting butterflies, honeybees and hummingbirds. Deer just walk on by.
