Buy Agastache foeniculum 'Alabaster' hyssop: Heaven for pollinators

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: hardy (borderline)

    A cool white-flowering hyssop, that produces its slender bottlebrush-like spikes for several months from midsummer. These not only look great (and will help add vertical interest to the border), but they also are sought after by pollinating insects. The subsequent seedheads are a feast for birds.

  • Garden care: Don't cut back the faded flower-stems in until early spring, as they provide interest in the winter months. Lift and divide congested colonies in spring.

Fabulous Plant

5

These start off like nettles but these got over 4 ft in my garden. The bees loved it all summer. One of two has returned after a Scottish winter. They lasted a long time in flower. I have bought more in blue this year. They are a fabulous statuesque plant.

Superb.

A superb plant, producing masses of tall white spires which are a magnet for Bees & other pollinators. Flowers from July to early October. The foliage has a wonderful minty scent. This variety contrasts beautifully with Blue Fortune & Blackadder, as well as Echinacea Purpurea, and looks great in a wildlife or cottage garden. A wonderful plant.

This is a beautiful plant in flower, and the seed heads have given structure to the garden throughout the winter.

Nice plant, not as vigorous as Blue Boa

A good plant, not as vigorous as other varieties that tend to out compete it.

Hello, yes I too bought three last Autumn for my new Prairie style border, and as the other customer said - there is no sign of life, unlike the other plants I purchased. As it is now 23/04 do you think the wet winter just rotted it and should I try to establish new ones now?

Sheila

Hello, Agastaches are always late into leaf, so I would give them at least another 4 - 6 weeks before deciding if they need to be replaced.

Helen

My Agastache purchased last autumn from you is not yet showing any signs of life ( unlike the other plants I purchased). Is it a late grower?

Kent lady

Hello there It is still early for a number of plants to be showing much growth, and Agastache are one of the later flowering garden plants, so I wouldn't be too concerned yet. I would give it another 4- 6 weeks. Hope this helps.

Aromatic agastaches

When the heat bounces off the ground and almost overwhelms you some plants are revelling in this heat. Aromatic plants with a Mediterranean provenance like the Agastache come into their own. They are fabulous additions to the summer garden adding a verti
