Agastache ‘Black Adder’ aka Anise Hyssop. A long-flowering cultivar that starts to bloom in midsummer and continues until early fall. Use this perennial to provide color in the garden late in the season when many other plants are finished. Its foliage smells distinctly like black licorice when crushed, thus its common name, Anise Hyssop.
