White Hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis f. albus)Herb in 9cm Pot
White Hyssop or Hyssopus officinalis f. albus is an attractive perennial herb that will make a fantastic hedging plant or plant for your border, 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 clear white 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.
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.
