      Hi Richo, We are in northern Arizona zone 7b. Would these survive winter freezes if we planted them in ground now?

      Hi Chelsea, Always hard to guarantee anything when weather is one of the variables. you can buy three, pot up one and put 2 to field. I find them to be excellent in dry situations and as mentioned in our newsletter we do recommend putting plants straight to garden in the fall in zones 7 and up. richo

      Richo I am looking for the best hyssop to buy, either live or dried, for adding to a Lung Health Tea that I make up. Added Note: I ended up with my great grandfather’s herbal remedy book – he was a scout for a wagon train that came west from Missouri, eventually called The Oregon Trail. He also gathered herbal remedies from the Native Americans. The book is titled Gunn’s Family Physician. Do you sell dried hyssop as well or have/know of a resource

      Hi Lea, My wife’s great grandmother walked the oregon trail from grand rapids to portland. no doubt there were herbs all along the trail. anyhow most of us are finding that the way to keep quality in and cost down is to grow our own. we have nice hyssop plants, you can get them. it is actually rare to find dried hyssop in commerce and when you do find it, it is old, which matters in essential oil plants. You can get hyssop tincture from herb pharm that is good quality. richo

  4. Question

    How does this differ from Lavender Angustifolia? I understand the officinalis is the medicinal identifier and of the mint family as is Lavender….curious as to the differences. Thank you

      Hyssop is different from lavender. they are both Mediterranean herbs that contain aromatic essential oils.
