Anise Hyssop, also known as blue giant hyssop, fragrant giant hyssop and lavender giant hyssop, is an easy to grow, herbaceous perennial herb of the Lamiaceae family, or mint family. Both the flowers and leaves have an intense licorice aroma and a bitter-minty flavor. The blossoms are often eaten as a salad garnish, and fresh or dried leaves may be brewed into a soothing tea. 

Anise Hyssop is a pollinator magnet and is a great addition to any type of garden. It grows 2-4 feet tall and about 1-3 feet wide and thrives in sun to partial shade. It can tolerate a wide range of soils as long as there is good drainage and is tolerant to drought, making it a great addition to any water wise gardens. 

Hyssop can be used as a cough and cold remedy, usually in the form of a tea. It loosens mucus, aids in congestion, and lessens the symptoms colds, flu, sinus infections, and bronchitis.
