Hyssop is an attractive plant which likes to be planted in conditions similar to rosemary or thyme, a well drained soil in a sunny position. As all parts of the plant are pleasantly aromatic and the flowers very attractive, plant it where it can be seen and brushed against. The flowers are also attractive to bees and butterflies. The slightly bitter leaves are finely chopped in salads, meats, soups and stews. Essential oil used in perfumery. Flowers from pink to blue.
