In the last incarnation of this bed, I had placed germander, santolina in an overgrown knot garden and for a surprise in the center I placed two 'Golden Jubilee' anise hyssops. During one very cold winter several years ago, I looked out the kitchen window and spotted a rabbit poking his/her head out of the center of this bed. It had made a home in the ice and snow on top of the anise hyssops! The next spring I only had one 'Golden Jubilee' left! I think the rabbit made a nest around the other or just sat on the poor thing and it rotted! This anise hyssop needs well-drained soil and full sun, but it will also tolerate light shade. It has chartreuse foliage and lavender-purple flowers. The flowers are edible and tasty. Like Good 'N Plenty candy! It attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. It is very drought tolerant! It is a plant that the deer don't eat it! Whoo! Hoo! Next season, we will have to move this one to another spot in the garden. It's a herbal keeper!
