Agastache foeniculum

Common name: Anise Hyssop

Native plant

2-4' upright plant in the mint family.  Foliage is extremely fragrant, with a scent that resembles licorice.  Pollinators can't get enough of their abundant, blue-purple, spike-like flowers, especially the bumblebees!  Blooms can last for up to 2 months in the right conditions, and additional blooms are encouraged by deadheading or pruning.  As an added bonus, the foliage can be used as a cooking herb.
