Detailed Product Info

One of our trials manager Erin's absolute favorite garden herb. Heavily scented, slightly fuzzy purply-green leaves are some of the first to emerge in the spring (once established). Pretty, upright foliage bears erect, pink flowers that attract pollinators like non-other, especially bees. A great choice for borders, flower gardens, cottage gardens and perennial herb gardens. A hardy perennial that self sows and comes back year after year. The leaves and flowers make a delicious and calming tea. Simply harvest the flowers at their peak, dry thoroughly and store in an airtight container.

Growing Instructions

Start seeds indoors 8-12 weeks before last spring frost. Surface sow several seeds per 2" cell, press in and water lightly, taking care not to dislodge the seeds. Keep moist but not wet in a cool environment for germination. Once seeds emerge, keep plants at a steady temperature, and do not over-water, letting soil dry a bit between waterings. Once plants are 2-3 inches high and soil is warm and workable, plants an be transplanted outdoors. You can also let them grow and establish themselves and transplant once 4-6 inches high. Anise hyssop prefers warm, well-drained soil and will thrive in poor and rich soils alike. Also great in perennial container plantings.
