This is a large aromatic hyssop with numerous pinkish purple tall flower spikes that attract pollinators galore. It is amazing to watch the hummingbirds, butterflies and bees all clamoring for the nectar. This is a hybrid of Desert Sunrise and Blue Fortune hyssop. You can see the bottle brush type flower spike of Blue Fortune and the tubular type flowers of Desert Sunrise combined on this one plant. This hybrid was developed by Kelly Grummons, owner of Timberline Gardens in Arvada.

This plant loves dry conditions once it is established and prefers well drained soils. Pinching back in the spring will keep it more compact. Leave stems standing through the winter and cut back in the spring after you see new growth.
