Yellow Giant Hyssop (Agastache nepetoides) is a fast-growing, strong-stemmed perennial in the mint family which grows 4-6' tall and produces whorls of tiny, greenish-yellow flowers closely packed into 5" terminal spikes on stiff, square stems. Toothed, arrowhead-shaped leaves are up to 5" long, but lack the fragrance common to many mint family members. Tolerant of summer heat and humidity. Long, late summer bloom, sometimes extending to first frost. Attractive to bees and butterflies.A native plant that typically occurs in moist, rich, open woodland areas, thickets, and woodland borders.

Genus name comes from the Greek words agan meaning "very much" and stachys meaning "ear of wheat" in reference to the appearance of the flower spikes.
