Hyssopus officinalis Hyssop

 

Pink and Blue Hyssop Flowers

A lovely addition to any garden. Here both the Pink and Blue Hyssop are shown growing side by side. A mid to late summer bloomer, both Hyssops look good planted with Tricolor Sage, Lavenders and Catmint. Bees and Butterflies are attracted to them. When they are finished blooming, shear back the flower stem and any untidy branches to create a welcome green globe. Hyssop makes a nice informal edging plant.

This Hyssop is not thought to be the hyssop of the Bible, because it is not native to the region. That honor is given to Origanum maru.

Dried Hyssop has been used sparingly as a minty culinary addition to soups, stews and herbal teas. Fresh leaves can be added to soft cheeses, butters, sauces and dips. Experiment with small amounts because it can be bitter. Flowers are milder flavored and can be used as a garnish.

Hyssop is included in our  English Cottage Herb Garden Six Pack and makes a great addition to our Wildlife Herb Garden Six Pack.
