Hyssop is an aromatic and medicinal perennial herb. Its flowers are irresistible to bees and other pollinators. The flowers and leaves can be made into an immune-boosting tea or tincture. Great for soothing colds and coughs. Excellent for singer's throats. Can also be used in cooking, baking, and flavouring meats and fruit dishes.

The flavour and scent is like a combination of mint, eucalyptus, rosemary and lavender.

Pollinators love these flowers. Grow hyssop to bring more bees to your garden to increase the yield of your vegetables. The plants look great in an herb garden, pollinator garden, or perennial border.

Please note that this is NOT Anise Hyssop, which has a very different liquorice flavour.

Growing Instructions

Sow indoors or outdoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. Likes well draining soils.

We ship seeds in Canada via regular letter mail, which is an untracked service, and usually takes 1-2 weeks to arrive. Larger bulbs and plants are sent via tracked flat rate box.


Shipping to the US

In our experience shipping seeds over several years, most small orders will make it across the border without issues, but occasionally they will be held at US Customs.
