|I love the fragrance of the foliage as I like to garden by the senses. I see, touch, smell and taste.
Three favorites of mine are pineapple sage, anise hyssop and this year I added rootbeer agastache.
I was wondering if anyone else here shares this affliction?
When sampling the rootbeer agastache leaves, they taste minty rather than rootbeer. When smelled, they make your tastebuds drool for a tall frosty mug.
I have used the pineapple sage and anise hyssop leaves for flavoring.
Wondering if anyone else uses the leaves of any of these?
I love that the hummingbirds like to share the pleasure of these blooms also. That appeals to the eye as do the blooms.
What other flavors are out there? I'm sure I'm missing something ~ lol
