Hyssopus Officinalis
This is Blue Hyssop, or Hyssop (not to be confused with Anise Hyssop, Agastache Foeniculum). This very hardy, adaptable, beautiful perennial has a lot going for it. Hyssop is quite drought tolerant, and loves full sun. It can handle very challenging growing conditions with grace. It’s intensely aromatic leaves and deep blue/purple flowers can be used like rosemary in cooking, or made into potent anti-viral and respiratory teas and medicines. As a member of the mint family it is super hardy, but unlike most mints, it doesn’t spread like crazy or show up all through the garden. As a boundary/protector plant of 1-2’ it is a wonderful ally.

Bees really enjoy the numerous flowers and long season, and we’re sure they benefit from the medicine it provides as well.

These types of heavily aromatic, rugged, flower loaded perennials are a great fit as support plants for young trees and shrubs of value, and can persist as an understory to support the beings that pollinate and defend your high value plantings.

Easy to divide or grow from saved seed, you can really ramp up your collection quickly if you wanted!

Size:
1‘ to 2’ or so
