Availability: In Stock
A first-year blooming perennial with an explosion of color, reminiscent of a colorful sunset, yet looks light and airy with its fine leaves. The flowers and silvery green foliage exude a pleasant scent when touched that reminds some of root beer, licorice or mint. Grow it where you or your pet will brush against it to release its heady fragrance. Hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees flock to the nectar-filled flower spikes. The leaves make a refreshing tea. A very drought-tolerant, and low-maintenance plant once established. Perennial in UDSA zones 6–9. Deer and rabbit resistant.

bright and delicate

5 out of 5 stars Nov 15, 2020
Love this hyssop. Started seed indoors in February, planted outdoors in April. Had 5 plants in flower beds and in a container. All did very well, producing beautiful electric melon colored blooms for long periods. The scent of the leaves is pleasant, the colors and scent paired with my basil plants and cosmos. The sprays of delicate grey green foliage is a great plant that helps break up the shapes in the beds. Did very well in a hot Texas summer. I will wait to see if the plants survive the winter and return in the Spring. Would highly recommend.

Tough plant for traveling gardener

Loved how this plant did NOT need my constant attention. And I could come back from travels to see it blooming like a rock star. And the scent was delightful when I cut pieces off for mixed flower arrangements.
