Native to moist and sunny meadows and slopes of the Pacific Northwest, this perennial herb makes a fine garden specimen. Bees and butterflies flock to its showy purple flower spikes held above the soft green foliage.
With a highly fragrant and minty aroma, the nettleleaf giant hyssop makes a wonderful and unique tea. The aromatic oils help to settle the stomach and improve digestion. A poultice or wash made from the fresh leaves and tops soothes irritated skin and helps your body decrease inflammation from injury or irritation.
