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. 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. 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 pedals exude a pleasant scent.
