The Purple Giant Hyssop (Agastache scrophulaiifolia) is a perennial herb in the mint family. It grows 3-6 feet in height and blooms from July-September with reddish-purple flowers. It prefers moist, rich soils and can grow in either sun or shade. Its conspicuous, fragrant flowers attract butterflies, native bees, honeybees, and bumble bees. It can be found on rich woodland borders, forested floodplains, and river terraces, especially over magnesium-rich soils.
Did You Know?
All Trout have a protective membrane or "slime coat" that covers their scales and is their first line of defense against infection and disease. Damage to this coating can severely hurt the fish. Wetting your hands or limiting contact with the fish increases the likelihood that the fish will survive.
