Nettle-leaf Giant Hyssop
Agastache urticifolia, nettle-leaf giant hyssop, is an erect
perennial that grows from 2'-4' (0.6-1.2m) high and has coarsely toothed,
alternating, opposite pairs of leaves to 3" (7.5cm) long and 2,5cm in width.
There is a good deal of variation in size of leaves and flowers. Dense
flowerheads may overall be white, pink, or purplish; to 2.5cm (1") thick
and 10cm (4") long. Each long, thin 'trumpet' flower, which is about 2cm
(3/4") long, has a notched upper lip and a 3-lobed lower one, 5 narrow sepals,
often tinged with pink, and protruding stamens. Its distribution ranges from
Colorado and Montanna to California and Oregon in North America, and in
Southern British Columbia where it is listed as an endangered specie on
the "RED LIST".
