Hyssop was well-established in English gardens by the 1400's, and was brought to America by early colonists. Thomas Jefferson listed Hyssop among plants for his kitchen garden in 1794. Sometimes used as an edging plant for gardens, this semi-evergreen sub-shrub forms spikes of violet-blue flowers in summer that are very attractive to bees and butterflies. Jefferson-documented: This plant was documented by Thomas Jefferson in his Garden Book, Notes on the State of Virginia, or other writings.

Sow seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost at 65 degrees F, transplant to 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and transplant outdoors to well-drained soil around the last spring frost. Approximately 150 seeds per packet.
