Product Description: Hyssopus officinalis L is a perennial herb that is commonly grown for its edible qualities. It is a brightly coloured shrub that ranges from 30 to 60 cm in height. The stem is woody at the base, from which grow a number of straight branches. Its leaves are lanceolate, dark green in colour, and range from 2 to 2.5 cm in length. This is a classic herb used in knot gardens and for low hedging. Can be readily shaped and is quite lovely in flower. The aroma of the flowers, either fresh or dried, is completely unique and one of the best of all herbal aromas.
