Anise Hyssop: Fluffy spikes burst with tiny flowers ranging from lavender to deep purple. Fragrant foliage smells herbal, like anise, and has white to light grey undersides that flash in the wind. A fabulous addition in sensory gardens. Easy to grow and often blooms in its first year. New seedlings are hardy and transplant readily. A favorite of bumblebees.

Mammalian herbivores normally avoid consumption of this plant due to the anise scent of the foliage.
