Hyssop is a great herb to have if water is a scarce commodity.

Needing infrequent watering and well drained soil are the only pre-requisites for good quality Hyssop.
Hyssop can be grown as a hedge or small individual shrubs.
It is similar to Rosemary in growth habit but is not as woody and un- manageable, and remains 50-60 cm high.
Hyssop is almost as good dried, as is the fresh which means it is possible to have a constant supply.

Can be used as a culinary herb or in combination with 'Feverfew' and 'Verbascium', medicinally.
