What are the pros? Tolerant and healthy plants

What are the cons? Long to start - need patience

Review:

These take 2 years to get anything really. I started these seeds spring of 2017. Only a few sprouted and of that only 2 survived. They were just hardly there....small, stubby plants. Not impressive. They hung around through our hot summer and unusually cold winter without any help from me....I just let nature do it's thing. Come spring of 2018 they took off like a weed and are growing super fast and really big. The fresh leaves smell pretty nasty when you crush the. I was surprised because the blue hyssop tea I usually order does not smell bad...but I also haven't dried any yet so maybe that is the key. Pretty looking plant and gets much larger then I expected so be sure to give it room. The growth patter reminds me of rosemary.

What are the pros? winter & drought tolerant

What are the cons? spreads easily, hard to kill

Review:

On its 4th year! I transplanted seedlings outside on year one and they survived even tho I read they wouldn't. Now comes back year after year and even attracts hummingbirds!! It didnt flower until its 2nd year tho. Smells really sweet when dying in the fall like syrup. It spreads really easily so could be considered a pest plant. I live really far up north in the U.S. and it survived our record breaking -40 degree winter the second year thus extremely winter hardy. You can cut it down in the fall when its dying to an inch off the ground if you dont want all that dead foilage around and by next spring it'll be 3ft tall again by the end of May. It's drought tolerant too. I neglected it on the 3rd year when we had a drought and didn't water it at all in the 100 degree heat that summer and along with the yarrow herb, grew very big as usual like nothing effected them. So this herb is extremely easy to plant, grows really big, extremely cold/winter hardy, & heat/drought tolerant.

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

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.
