I planted several anise hyssop plants (purchased from the nursery) as companion plants in my asparagus beds. They grew into lovely bushes of lavender flowers and seemed to attract all sorts of bees and butterflies. I even saw a few honey bees (hopefully from my hives which are not too far away). They have bloomed all summer and are still going strong. I am thinking about doing a mass planting for next year if I am convinced my honey bees will benefit (as well as my honey crop!) The flowers and leaves are edible for humans, too, and have a licorice taste. Yummy. Does anyone else have any experience with Anise Hyssop as relates to their honey bees?
