Hummingbirds, butterflies and bees find hard to resist the long-blooming hybrid hyssop ‘Raspberry Summer’. This clump-forming herbaceous perennial produces long dense spikes of large, deep rosy-red, tubular flowers. A fast-growing introduction from Terra Nova Nurseries, it can also be grown as annual in areas where it isn't hardy. It begins blooming in the heat of midsummer and will continue up until frost if regularly deadheaded. Like most members of the mint family, it has fragrant foliage, which smells of anise when crushed.
Full sun is required for best flowering and good performance. Raspberry summer hyssop can be grown in average to dry garden soil, but a well-draining, fertile, alkaline loam will allow it to reach its best. Beware wet, heavy clay soils as these will cause plants to rot, particularly in wet winter weather. Keep spent blooms trimmed to prevent reseeding or leave them on for the goldfinch to enjoy.. This is an ideal plant for any sunny perennial border, wildflower or butterfly garden.
