Hyssop, Blue (Hyssopus officinalis)

Hyssop, Blue – Hyssopus officinalis

Hyssop, Blue – Hyssopus officinalis is a semi-evergreen hardy perennial. It has narrow aromatic leaves with blue flowers in the summer. The flowers are also very attractive to bees and butterflies.

Hyssop makes a fantastic hedge or edging plant. Clip back in March and deadhead to prolong the flowering period.

Hyssop also looks great in a pot on the patio.

Plant in a well drained, sunny position.

Although not commonly known Hyssop is a useful culinary herb to use sparingly.  Chop and scatter young leaves onto salads, meat or oily fish dishes, or use to flavour soups, stews and fruit dishes. Hyssop is said to aid the digestion of fatty or rich foods.

Hyssop also has medicinal properties. A tea made from the dried flowers with honey added is ideal for relieving coughs and chest troubles.
