(Mexican Giant Hyssop) Bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds love the nectar of this Agastache’s tubular blossoms that may range from hot pink to the reddish-purple of Sangria. They cluster in whorls on long flower spikes above mid-green, lance-shaped foliage that smells like lemons and is tasty in tea.

As its common name indicates, this plant is native to Mexico. Records in Missouri Botanic Garden’s Tropicos database show that it has been found growing wild from Chihuahua to Veracruz. Like many members of the mint family (Lamiaceae), it requires well-drained soil. If you plant Mexican Giant Hyssop in a container, choose one with good drainage holes. Although drought-resistant, it prefers average irrigation based on local rainfall with the opportunity for soil to dry out moderately between waterings. Like most Agastache, it grows well in mineral soils low on fertility, but is adaptable to other mixes.

Give this sturdy, heat-tolerant beauty full sun. It’s tall, erect, and somewhat narrow, so tuck it between other plantings in the middle and back of flowerbeds. Then get ready for a buzzfest of pollinators.
