What are the pros? Beautiful, Fragrant,

Review:

I bought this on a whim not really knowing what to expect. The seeds germinated easily and the plant grew fairly quickly. It bloomed the first year. It's now in its second year of growth and is at least four feet tall. It has a sweet anise fragrance and fits perfectly in a flower bed. It flowers beautifully and the bumblebees absolutely love it!

What are the pros? Subtle licorice scent

What are the cons?

Review:

Sprouted easily and quickly became established. Tall spikes of purple flowers have very light licorice scent unless bruised. Grew in part shade location last summer and have been rewarded with many volunteers this spring.

What are the pros? wonderful smell, long lasting

What are the cons? not sure how to use

Review:

I bought about eight herb varieties last year and this had to be my favorite. It has a very deep aroma which is unmistakably anise, and the plant is hardy and pretty. It is still early spring and the plant is the first I have seen growing back of my herbs, and they already smell wonderful. My only problem is that I am not sure how to use them. I might make tea this year, but that's about it. I wouldn't want such a strong licorice taste in my salad.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

Review:

Started indoors from seed in 2014, transplanted to garden (full sun) after frost. Grew quite large by the end of the summer, producing lovely flowers that attract pollinators. Dried the leaves and flowers to make sweet licorice tasting tea. Left outside for the (long and cold) winter, but the plant survived and was one of the earliest shoots in the spring.

Nice anise flavor

What are the pros? Excellently flavored flowers

What are the cons? None

Review:

I'm fond of anise or fennel-like flavors, and so gave anise hyssop a try. The leaves have a mild anise flavor with a bit of bitterness (similar to the bitterness of many herbs, e.g. oregano). The flowers, however, have a wonderfully sweet and intense anise-like flavor. A real treat! Germination is similar to other mint-family herbs. I only got one plant from every four or five cells, but I'm a novice at starting herbs. The plants grew slowly at first, but have now grown to about 2 feet over the past five months in a warm climate. It may be perennial here, but I can't confirm that yet.
