Lamiaceae > Agastache rupestris var. ,

Threadleaf giant hyssop (Agastache rupestris), also known as Licorice Mint, is a wildflower of the mint family (Agastache) native to the mountains of Arizona, New Mexico, and Chihuahua, Mexico.[1] Popular in xeriscaping because of its heat tolerance and ability to thrive in dry, nutrient-poor soil, it is often planted in a containers or as a border flower and used to attract hummingbirds.[2] Displaying gray-green stems and leaves while dormant, its orange flowers with purple buds bloom forth from mid-summer until the fall; if crushed the petals exude a pleasant scent.[1]
