Anise hyssop (also called blue giant hyssop or licorice mint) is an herbaceous perennial and member of the Lamiaceae or mint family. The plant is native to North America and grows especially well in the Great Plains and prairies of the United States. Anise hyssop was used by indigenous tribes of North America for its healthful, astringent, and aromatic properties. It is a popular garden cultivar, not only because it is tolerant of both deer and drought, but it also attracts a wide array of pollinators.
