Upright, clump-forming perennial of the mint family that is native to parts of the upper Midwest and Great Plains. It is typically found in prairies, dry upland forested areas, plains and fields.
Anise Hyssop gfrow 2 to 4 ft tall, has very showy flowers, fragrant foliage and seems to be of little interest to deer. It's a bee, hummingbird, and butterfly magnet! When the leaves of the Anise Hyssop are crushed they smell like licorice and have been used to make tea and cold remedies. Other common names in use: Lavender Hyssop or Blue Giant Hyssop.
Great for borders, wildflower gardens, herb gardens, butterfly gardens or meadows. Flower spikes are attractive additions to fresh cut or dried arrangements.
