Sonoran Sunset Hyssop

Plant Details

Plant Description: A native of New Mexico, this hyssop features tubular, sweetly fragrant, purple flowers arranged in whorls on salvia-like spikes. Has a long bloom time from June to September. Prefers full sun and low moisture. Non-invasive. Attractive to butterflies and bees.


Perennial - Herbaceous (soft-stemmed plants that die in winter and regrow in spring): Remove spent blooms to promote rebloom later. Some plants tend to flop over after the first bloom and attempt to regrow from the base; in these cases, the old stems can be cut away in summer. As plants become dormant in the fall, remove dead leaves and stems.
