Agastache rugosa 'Little Adder' PP26514

Anise Hyssop

Standing just half the height of 'Black Adder', this compact selection is easy to fit into any sunny, hot, dry landscape. What it lacks in height, it makes up for in three times the flower power of tall hyssops. It presents beautifully in containers at retail and is long blooming, bearing deep purple buds and violet-blue flower spikes.
