The Poquito™ Orange Hyssop is an interspecific hybrid.  It flowers on airy spikes above finely textured foliage and has a lovely licorice-scent to the flowers and leaves. The pollinators will love it. 

Plant in full sun in a wide variety of soil types as long as they are very well-drained.  It is considered drought and salt-tolerant but will not tolerate wet feet, especially wet clay winter soils. It works well in beds, borders, or planted in containers.
