A member of the mint family, Agastache foeniculum is native to the northern and central plains of North America. Native Americans in these regions used the flowers and leaves of this Agastache to make a tea for respiratory complaints. Americans began to use Anise Hyssop by the early 1800s, and the plant was grown in English gardens by 1826. Highly attractive to bees, a light, fragrant honey is made from Anise Hyssop. The botanical name is from the Greek agan, meaning “very much,” and stachys, meaning “ear of wheat,” while foeniculum is Latin for “hay”.
