Hyssopus officinalis subsp. aristatus (Rock Hyssop)Herb in 1 Litre Pot 

Rock Hyssop or Hyssopus officinalis subsp. aristatus is an attractive perennial herb that will make a fantastic edging plant or a specimen in the front of a border, as it grows up to 40cm tall and is a particularly compact variety.Rock Hyssop can be back hard in the spring (into older woody stems) to encourage new growth and keep the plant tidy.

A bushy plant, Rock Hyssop has an upright habit, and many stems of short spike-like aromatic green leaves, and deep blue flower spikes which 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.

Herb Usage

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.

  1. A beautiful blue 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2019

    This plant was lovely and healthy when it arrived. Haven’t planted it yet due to the weather, but intend to plant it in a sunny border where it will attract bees and butterflies. Can’t wait to see it in full bloom. The colour looks sensational and will look even better once it has spread. It isn’t overly invasive and flowers during the summer.

  2. great service 5 Star Review
