Hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis), is a herbaceous plant or small shrub in the Mint family (Lamiaceae), native to southern Europe and the region surrounding the Caspian Sea. It is a brightly coloured plant that ranges from 30 - 60 cm (12-24in) in height. The stem is woody at the base, from which grow a number of straight branches. The leaves are lanceolate, dark green in colour, and typically about 2 cm (0.75in) in length. During the summer, the plant produces bunches of pink, blue, or white, fragrant flowers. These give rise to small oblong achenes.
