Agastache foeniculum: seeds

Agastache foeniculum (known in English as lavender hyssop, anise hyssop, licorice mint, and in French as fenouil, anis hysope, hysope anisée or grande hysope, is a herbaceous perennial native to most of Canada and the northern United States. As some of the common names suggest, it smells like licorice and is a member of the mint family (Lamiaceae). Like many mints, it has spikes of light purple flowers.

This is my first year growing lavender hyssop, starting from these seeds I purchased from Wildflower Farm, an Ontario nursury specializing in native plants.

The seeds are dark brown and about 1 mm long; small, but not too difficult to handle.
