General Description

Winner of the coveted Fleuroselect Award, 'Golden Jubilee' is a showy, seed-propagated selection of anise hyssop, an upright herbaceous perennial native to North America. This member of the mint family has eye-catching, licorice-scented leaves that are golden chartreuse maturing to citron-green. Its bluish-purple flower spikes appear from midsummer to early autumn. Its habit is more compact than typical anise hyssop.

This low-maintenance, drought-tolerant plant likes well drained soil and full sun. It is an excellent choice for sunny mixed borders and hummingbird gardens and does well in containers.
