Common name: Hyssop-Anise
One of the easiest and most rewarding perennials to grow! Long bloomer. Produces lavender blue, bottlebrush-like flowers on strong, upright stems from midsummer to early fall. It is useful for adding a spot of color to the garden late in the season when many other plants are finished. Its foliage smells distinctly like black licorice when crushed, thus its common name Anise Hyssop. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. Deer Resistant.
