(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 couple of years ago. It took a while to start off, but now they are about as big as our lavender plants. Actually, they look a lot like lavender. I transplanted a couple this fall. I didn't know where to put them. I stuck them in my chicken yard. They have survived -15F outside. The chickens aren't bothering them. I have also put the ornamental blue fescue grass in my chicken run because I think that bare ground is ugly and unhealthy.

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

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!
