Hyssop, Official (Hyssopus officinalis)
Woody perennial native to the Mediterranean. The aroma of the bright blue hyssop flowers is indescribably excellent. This is an underappreciated herb both in terms of its landscaping potential (the apothecary gardens of the middle ages used hyssop extensively as a low-lying hedgeplant) and its medicinality. The plant is a mild but effective diuretic, expectorant and antiviral (who says there's no cure for the common cold!). Plant prefers full sun, dryish soils, and is hardy to 15 degrees F. Our hyssop, like our other plants, is well-established in deep pots filled with excellent potting soil. They will thrive for you.
