Although the plant is a bit gone over, the flowers are still in bloom and the bees are all over it. Interestingly, this particular plant has stalks of both blue and pink flowers. Whilst some people might not care for this variation, I like it very much and hope the mixed genetics remain.

Some Herbs may be too tall for our standard packaging and will be trimmed to fit. This will not be detrimental to the plant but will mean that these herbs will flower later in the year.
The Blister packs used to protect our beautiful herbs during transit are made from 100% recycled plastic and can be recycled kerbside.
Blue Hyssop (Hyssopus Officinalis)Herb in 1 Litre Pot
Blue Hyssop or Hyssopus officinalis is an attractive perennial herb that will make a fantastic hedging plant or border, as it grows from 60cm to 90cm tall, and can be back hard in the spring (into older woody stems) to encourage new growth and keep the plant tidy.
A bushy plant, with an upright habit, Hyssop has many stems of short spike-like green leaves, and deep blue flower spikes appear in Summer, creating an absolutely beautiful display.
Preferring well-drained dry soil and a sunny position, Hyssop will grow well with little maintenance, and is an attractive addition to the border as well as the herb garden, it is bee and butterfly friendly too.
Although cultivated mostly for medicinal purposes, the leaves do have limited culinary uses e.g. used sparingly in salads, marinades and stews and the volatile oil of Hyssop is used today as an ingredient in some liquors, including Benedictine and Chartreuse.
Because of its strong, camphor-like smell, Hyssop is known mainly as a cleansing herb, and the leaves and flowers of Hyssop have a licorice-minty taste, so can be added to poultry stuffings (with sage), chicken soup or use small amounts with fatty fish and meat and can be dried for use in teas.
