Watching this little bee enjoy an Anise Hyssop blossom in our garden. Hyssop is a wonderful herb for attracting more pollinators to your garden. Hardy and drought-tolerant, this perennial herb will bloom throughout the summer starting in June. Its attractive anise-scented blue flowers are a magnet for pollinators like bees and butterflies. The spiky blue flower heads hold their beautiful lavender-blue color even after they’ve finished blooming. Use the flower heads fresh or dried to make an herbal tea, or use them as a garnish on top of summer fruit salads or cucumber gazpacho.
