Hyssop ‘Nectar Rose’ (Hyssopus officinalis)

Description

From summer to fall, Nectar Rose hyssop produces slender, leafy spikes of rosy lavender flowers above its fine, aromatic leaves. European in origin, this low, bushy, semi-evergreen subshrub is commonly grown as a perennial for herb gardens and borders.

True hyssop has very small, fine, medium green leaves. From midsummer to early autumn, it produces a modest display of leafy, upright stems lined with small, funnel-shaped blossoms with two lips. The flowers irresistible to bees and may even draw the occasional butterfly.

Grow hyssop in full sun and average, well-drained soil that is neutral to alkaline. The plants can withstand some drought once established. Pruning is best done in mid-spring. It takes well to hard pruning and shearing and can be clipped and shaped for edging and parterres. Grow this charming plant in any sunny garden space.
