Hi I'm not sure if this is an appropriate question, but I'm wondering if all agastache plants are edible. I have an Acapulco agastache trio plant and cannot find any info on this.

Agastache are a member of the Lamiacea or mint family of plants and the species is edible. Fresh and dried leaves are used as seasoning or in making tea, and the blossoms are also eaten fresh.

Whether your specific cultivar is edible, I suspect that it is, but I am not sure.
