What are the pros? Bees, butterflies, beautiful
What are the cons? Overwhelming after 1 year.
Overwhelming after 1 year, in that the seeds spread out through out our garden. BUT I was able to let my artist out and really make something beautiful.

What are the pros? Can't kill it
What are the cons? Nothing
I planted this from seed three years ago. Every winter it dies and then comes back as soon as it warms up (which here is in March), from both dormant roots/stems and reseeding. It has reseeded itself in several places and I absolutely love it. So do the bees :)

What are the pros? Easy to start from seed
What are the cons? None
I planted about 20 that I started from seed. Easy to germinate and start indoors. All plants survived and were very hardy. Very long blooming. I planted these for my bees and they loved it! Was the last thing blooming in my garden when not much else was available for the bees. Still had blooms at our first hard frost. Will plant again!

What are the pros? Scent, flowers, edible, bees
I am in coastal Southern California (zone 10b) and this Anise Hyssop grew beautifully. The flowers are gorgeous, attracting tons of bees. And the smell of anise is delightful. I have sandy soil, and make sure to water every 4 days at least, but I have neglected it quite a bit and it seems to continue to grow. I am hoping it is a perennial in my climate. Have not yet made tea or have eaten the leaves, but will plan on it. Glad I purchased these seeds!

What are the pros? Aesthetic, Fragrant, Tasty
What are the cons? Slightly leggy vegetation
I planted these seeds in my greenhouse for my mother-in-law because she likes licorice. The leaves are very fragrant and the flowers are both fragrant and mildly sweet. I might try putting the flowers in a salad with blue cheese and a sweeter style dressing. The plants like to sprawl a little bit, which is okay. Once the flowers are mostly dead you can pinch below the flower at the leaf/stem joint (like you would a basil) to get new stems to grow. This plant is watered every 3 days, but sometimes when I'm lazy (or forgetful) then it may go about 5 days without issue. Mine are located where they get dappled sunlight, otherwise they might flower more.
