Hyssop was a well-established plant in English gardens by the 15th century, and was brought to America by early colonists. Thomas Jefferson listed Hyssop among plants for his kitchen garden in 1794. Sometimes used as an edging plant for gardens, the trimmings from hyssop were spread over floors (as a strewing herb) where they would give off a pleasant, fresh smell when dry. Hyssop was recommended by Gerard (1597) in combination with figs, water, honey, and rue to “helpeth the inflammation of the lungs, the old cough, and shortnesse of breath…” Use Hyssop in mixed borders, herb gardens, or as an edging plant as you would young Boxwoods.
