(Hyssopus officinalis) Excellent for attracting bees and butterflies on bright blue flowers; reputedly a superb antiviral plant that many use to treat flu, etc.

Review:

I planted this a little late last summer as part of a bee attracting effort. They didn't do much and I honestly forgot what the plant was. The small plant survived the winter (a mild one, granted, but plenty of freezes). When I went to dig out a new vegetable garden in the area, I saved this plant because it smelled like something I would have planted on purpose (kind of marigold ish). I transplanted in early May and now in late June it is starting to make lovely blue flowers. The plant is much smaller than I thought it would be based on the pictures - maybe 8-12" in height. It is trying to spread a bit, though still bushy. Each of the flower bunches is maybe the diameter of my thumb. I may incorporate this into a hedge or border - I think it would be great for that purpose.

What are the pros? Attracts bees

What are the cons? Doesn't do well in rainy areas

Review:

I live in zone 7b, and, I planted some of these at my mother's house, several years back. I prepared the soil in the middle of an large old tree stump, and direct-sowed into the dirt after last frost. They did not come up until the following year, and, made a beautiful clump of tall purple flowers that the bees went nuts over, reseeding and coming back for about three years. We experienced a very wet season that rotted the roots and they finally died out.

Review:

Started a tray of these under my grow lights early this year with my late veggies. Thought "well, I'll give it a try." Within a few weeks, these were ready to transplant out of starter cells into 3 inch pots. Don't water too much, they don't like overwatering. I kept these in the 3 inch pots into late spring outside, then transplanted again into 8 inch pots with good potting soil - wasn't sure where I wanted them yet. I must add that I am not the best at remembering to water - these poor little things have been wilted so many times, but a good dunk in a water bucket and they were good to go! Here it is October, we've had a couple of really good, hard freezes (yes.... while I'm in 6a, we live in a valley and have seen three or four mornings of mid 20's already). These little bushes, which I embarrassingly haven't transplanted yet (but will today!) are still in great shape. Frost/freeze didn't hurt them. We are a small apiary, so I'll be putting these around our hives for the girls.

What are the pros? great plant!

What are the cons? delicate seedlings

Review:

I tried to start these indoor - almost all the other 30 varieties of veggies, flowers and herbs I started did fine (except lavender, argh), but the 7 hyssop seedlings died overnight about 10 days after sprouting. Probably user error here - I think it was damping off from maybe having the soil too wet - will try again both inside and out. I will update my review if successful!

What are the pros? Long Honeybee season

What are the cons? none

Review:

This has been a real winner for the honeybees. I started three plants indoors in peat pellets, then later transplanted outside. It has survived its first winter in Boulder Colorado (zone 5) and has bloomed for several months both years. The bees really like it.
