Agastache rugosa f. Albiflora
White anise hyssop
The flower heads resemble upright mini-corn and are covered in tiny white flowers. The foliage resembles a nettle. Really sounds unattractive doesn't it? But in RHS trials it performed exceptionally well for the genus and was recommended as a good variety. Why? It's a coolly, understated filler plant that sets off showier specimens to a tee.
The delicately scented flowers are a beacon for pollinators and the aromatic foliage is a firm, deep green. When given good drainage and sun, it thrives.
A superb backbone plant for any style of planting.
