Ratings & Reviews

(Morello Anise Hyssop) Pollinators love Agastache ‘Morello’ for its dense spikes of deep burgundy rose flowers filled with rich nectar. They never seem to stop blooming. Unlike many anise hyssops that prefer dry conditions, this adaptable perennial even thrives in the humid East and Southeast.

This vigorous, rapid grower tolerates cold and heat. Morello is a cross between Cusick’s Giant Hyssop (Agastache cusickii), Texas Hummingbird Mint (Agastache cana), and Pale Giant Hyssop (Agastache pallida). Many Agastaches have a heady scent that has been described as being a combination of anise (a licorice-like scent), citrus and mint. The aromatic, deep green foliage of Morello Anise Hyssop resists mildew and turns bronze when temperatures cool.

Due to its height and upright, clumping form, Morello Anise Hyssop is a fine choice for the middle of borders. Give it full sun, average watering based on local conditions, and soil that drains well. Let the soil dry moderately between waterings.

Agastache are mainstays in the pollinator garden, attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. In general, they prefer mineral soils low on fertility, but Morello is adaptable to more fertile soils. At FBTS we trial dozens of new varieties, but only offer the very best for sale. We consider Morello to be tops as a deep red-tone Agastache, which is why we’ve identified it as a Best of Class plant in our catalog. We predict you’ll love it.
