Agastache nepetoides - White Hyssop

  • White Hyssop blooms in late summer with clustered white-yellow flowers in long cylindrical spikes. This is a favorite of bees, butterflies, and other pollinators for the nectar in the long blooming flowers. This species of Agastache prefers growing in rich, open woodlands, so does best with some shade and moisture. While the leaves don’t have a strong smell like other species in the mint family, the bitterness of its leaves make it deer resistant.
