Anise Hyssop? Sign In/Join

Has anyone grown it?
I'm considering it for a particular spot, but since it's in the mint family, I wonder if it'll be more aggressive than desirable. None of the many articles I'm reading say it's a problem, but articles don't always tell the whole truth.

nettie, I love anise hyssop. great insect plant. I grow it mainly for the bees. Here in NH I have to plant it frequently as it peters out on me. Not aggresive for 5b in southern NH. Am going to look for some seeds and wintersow it this year as I want more also.

Thanks so much, J.
I like the idea of the bees' attraction to it. These articles say it's butterfly and hummer friendly, too. Hope so!
I just wanted confirmation that it wouldn't overtake the entire yard. Thanks again.
