Anise hyssop is an easy growing plant that does not reflect much hassle. All it needs is a partly shaded region with moist yet well-drained and slightly acidic to neutral soil (6.0 to 7.0 pH) to grow. The plant can either be initiated with broadcasted seeds or divisions.
For witnessing a vibrant growth, the seeds are stratified in a cold moist environment. Anise hyssop is often labeled as short-lived but its aggressive root system and vigorous self-seeding property make it immortal.
The seeds of Anise hyssop are broadcasted in early fall to have them sprouted by the spring. For propagation via divisions, the process is kick-started in early spring or late fall. The only risk in propagation via cuttings is the production of infertile or seedless plants that are obviously of no use in the long run.
Anise hyssop plant manifest robust growth in both indoor and outdoor settings provided the fact that the favorable growing conditions are supplied to it in a controlled manner.
Anise hyssop is an apparently short-lived perennial that germinates quickly within 1-4 weeks upon broadcast. The seeds then sprout and soon a bunch of true leaves emerges.
The bloom time of the plant depends on the time of its germination. It can either bloom in early fall or summer. The attractive lavender-colored flowers along with its alluring scent invite the pollinating agents to serve the cause of pollination.
Soon the seeds start appearing that are quite small but are easily detachable which gives the plant a reason to be a vigorous self-propagator.
