Anise Hyssop is a gorgeous addition to the garden. It is very popular with pollinators and beneficial insects like bees, butterflies, and parasitic wasps. The flowers and leaves are edible and have a licorice flavor and can be used in baking or to make an eye catching fresh tea. It is traditionally used by the Native Americans as a cough syrup, or to make a poultice for burns. The flowers dry beautifully and keep their scent well.
