Hyssopus officianalis

Hyssop is an herbaceous perennial that produces woody two foot tall plants with gorgeous blue, purple, pink, or white flowers.

Hyssop has been used throughout antiquity for ritual purification purposes. Additionally, and perhaps more importantly, it has been used medicinally as a cough reliever and topically as an antiseptic. It is a wonderful plant for bee gardens, its pollen being renowned for producing amazing honey.

Hyssop Germination: Hyssop thrives in light, well drained soil and full sun or partial shade, and should be planted after the last frost of spring. It can also be planted in late fall for spring germination. Since the seeds need light to germinate, sow them on the surface of the soil 6" apart and thin them to 12" when the seedlings appear. Germination may take as long as 3-4 weeks. For companion planting benefits, plant hyssop near cabbages or grapevines, but not radishes. Hyssop also makes an excellent border, hedge, or container plant because of its attractive blooms and bushy, compact growing habit; this herb attracts many bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies. Perennial. Zone 3-9.
