Description

Aromatic, busy plant with small leaves and tiny blue flowers along the stems.

Hyssop plants are a dark, vibrant green with a spiky, upright habit and narrow tongue-like leaves that have a peppery scent when stroked. Hyssop is a strong-flavoured aromatic herb similar to rosemary or lavender which is enjoying a revival with home gardeners.

It is an ideal plant for use in containers or as a low hedge or border within the herb garden. In cooking, use the same way you would Rosemary. It should be used sparingly as the flavour is very strong. Young leaves can be used chopped and scattered on salads, sprinkled on meat or oily fish dishes or used to flavour soups, stews and fruit dishes.

柳薄荷,别名牛膝草、神香草,科属唇形科。是一种半常绿灌木植物,茎直立,叶狭小。

柳薄荷的味道和薄荷非常相似,一般采取茎叶柔软的部分,在汤和色拉凉菜中使用,叶子可作成酱或料理的调味料,茎叶和花作成泡酒的配香,植物体本身也可酿酒。晚夏开花,穗状花序蓝紫色,微风吹过,有淡淡清香。

柳薄荷喜日照充足通风良好,排水良好的沙质壤土或土质深厚壤土为佳。种子直播,每穴2-3粒。
