(Poquito Butter Yellow Anise Hyssop) Agastache x ‘Poquito Yellow’ looks yummy. The flowers of this pretty dwarf anise hyssop are a richer yellow — like egg yolks — than butter. But “egg yolk” wouldn’t make for a pretty name.

(Poquito Butter Yellow Anise Hyssop) Agastache x ‘Poquito Yellow’ looks yummy. The flowers of this pretty dwarf anise hyssop are a richer yellow — like egg yolks — than butter. But “egg yolk” wouldn’t make for a pretty name. So, Poquito Butter Yellow Anise Hyssop it is, and poquito is Spanish for “tiny.”

Low, compact, and upright, this is a bushy plant in contrast to the airy, wispy, unruly look of many Southwestern anise hyssops. Its tidy appearance makes it a good choice for borders and containers. Similar to other types of Agastache, it is a great pollinator plant producing rich nectar and pollen loved by bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

Both cold and heat tolerant, Poquito Butter Yellow Anise Hyssop is easy to love and grow. Like other Agastache, its foliage is fragrant and is often described as being reminiscent of licorice due to essential oils that are useful in flavorings, perfumes, and medications. The fragrance is also good for deterring deer, which don’t seem to like the smell.
