Agastache Alabaster Ground Cover
Agastache foeniculum Alabaster (Giant Hyssop, Korean Mint)
An unusual cool white Agastache producing spires of bottlebrush white flowers through the Summer months. Attractive pale green foliage gives off a liqourice scent when you brush past. Not only does this Hyssop make a great border plant, the flowers are irresistable to bees and butterflies, the seed heads that follow will provide a feast for the birds. Use the edible young leaves in salads or teas
As a rough guide planting Agastache Alabaster as ground cover – 4 plants per square metre is adequate with a little patience, 6 will give better coverage and 9-12 will make a weed supressing carpet very quickly.
