A neat and compact form of hyssop with deep blue flowers in late summer.
Fresh leaves can be added to stews, flowers sprinkled in salads. Leaves have antibacterial properties, infusions can be taken for colds and coughs.
Keep in a sunny position and no not overwater (it prefers dry soil). Prune back hard (take off 2/3) in spring, to encourage new growth and keep neat.
Planted in a peat-reduced compost mix with added perlite for extra drainage.
Choose whether you receive your herb planted up in an Italian terracotta pot, with a matching saucer - or if you already have a pot in mind, keep it in its nursery pot.
