Anise hyssop, a perennial that is native to North America. Because it is as lovely as it is aromatic, this herb is also often grown in flower gardens, where it makes a very attractive background plant. It attracts honey bees and is a source of nectar for butterflies. Aroma and flavor are an intriguing mix of anise and mint.
