Details

18-24" tall x 12-15" wide (seed propagated). A fragrant herb traditionally used for brewing tea and as a medicinal plant, Hyssop is right at home in the ornamental garden. Its deep green foliage and dark-blue flower spikes are a delight in mid-summer, when many other plants are looking beat from the heat. Extremely attractive to bees and butterflies, it is a wonderful companion plant to pink and orange Agastache. This is a wonderful lavender substitute for colder climates. Cut back to green foliage in early to mid-spring.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Hyssopus officinalis ssp. aristadus:

    I bought two of these last Fall and frankly put them in a not too friendly spot with not much care. They have come back very healthy and I am looking forward to seeing the blooms. It is too early here in Colorado to see blooms yet, but looking forward to a colorful summer.

      I bought two of these last
      Fall and frankly put them in a really unforgiving spot. They have come back strong and look very healthy, it is too early for them to bloom, Spring Colorado snows but I am looking forward to what they will bring.

      Q & A

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
