Considered a high value nectar source for both honey bees and native bees, blue giant hyssop has become a popular choice for a wide range of plantings including mesic prairies, savannas, raingardens, shorelines, and the edges of stormwater ponds. Another pollinator favorite, the plant is also enjoyed for its aromatic leaves, which smell like licorice. Learn more here.
