Verbena Bracteata

Following an attack of cellulitis around my ankle, I developed a painful leg ulcer that was slow to respond to conventional treatment. Then I read the article on your site about Aloe Vera, and promptly ordered a large plant, which arrived quickly in excellent condition. No, it was not an overnight cure, but perseverance over a number of weeks resulted in a completely healed ulcer, just as promised. To guard against reinfection, I rub a little juice on the vulnerable area each night. Also, I suffer from contact dermatitis, and find the juice is excellent for taking the itch out of a rash, and promoting healing. My heartfelt thanks for the information, and for the super plant which, potted on into a large container and standing by my kitchen patio door, grows bigger every day. I will be recommending Aloe Vera to all my family and friends - definitely a 'must have' plant.

Agastache foeniculum or Anise Hyssop has large, beautiful bold spikes of light purple flowers which are on display all summer and into early autumn, making it a great addition to any border.

Anise hyssop (Agastache foeniculum) is a member of the mint (Lamiaceae) family. With lavender-colored flowers and leaves that exhibit licorice-like flavors, this herbaceous plant is grown for both its beauty and edibility. Growing to a height of around three feet, the bushy, upright plants will perform best when placed at the back of herb or pollinator gardens. Here are some other interesting facts about anise hyssop.Anise hyssop plants enjoy full sun, but can tolerate light shade if needed. If you wish to get a head start on the growing season, seeds can be started indoors about eight weeks before you want to plant them outside. Plant outside after risk of frost has passed. The roots of the plant prefer well-drained, nutrient-rich soil with a slightly acidic pH. Anise hyssop can also be grown in containers for ornamental or culinary purposes.
