Re: now agastache

I was generalizing on the common name, sorry.  It is called Korean Mint,
Korean Hyssop, or Wrinkled Giant Hyssop.  I got the seed years ago labeled
that way and then when I went to donate it for the seed sale, had trouble
finding details on it.  However, it seems to be staging a comeback.  I see
High Country Gardens is carrying it, but they refer to the species name as
masculine, A. rugosum, and they show it hardy zones 5-9.

However, judging by HCG's description, my seed could have been mislabeled as
my plants are at least 3 ft tall but do look much like the photos.  It self
sows.  I hadn't planted it for years and had been pulling the few
volunteers, but let this one go ahead last year.  I was quite glad I did.  I
loved watching those finches on it.

I could send you some seed.  The finches got a lot, but I was able to
collect plenty.  Not as much as other times I collected it though because we
were pretty wet here last fall.
