Hyssop Flower

A Perennial for Southwestern landscapes.

The Hyssop Flower (Agastache Cana) – This great little plant will grow to about 15″ tall and about 18″ wide.  It is a prolific bloomer from about late summer to late fall in and around the southwest.  This variety is a showy lavender rose-colored flower.  It is an easy plant to grow and can be used in full sun or partial shade conditions. The plant is considered a flowering herb and is in the mint family.  The one pictured below is called the Sonoran  Sunset® Hyssop and will do great in a herb or flowering garden.  Hyssops will attract hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies.

Where to plant Hyssop?

Plant them in the garden towards the background with smaller perennials or annuals in the foreground.  Use them in full sun but will do better with partial shade during the hot summer months.  You can plant them in containers or use them as tall background plants with shorter perennials in front.  They will get quite large so make sure to use a large pot to accommodate a large root system.  For good results use good loamy organic composted soil.

When do Hyssops bloom?

In the Southwest, they will bloom from about mid to late summer. The blooms are long-lasting. They will do fine in rock landscapes providing they get additional water.
