Good, all, it will be interesting to hear more about hyssops. I will have to get out today and take some pictures to show comparison to the pictures that I put in the beginning of this thread, I will try to get the pictures from the same angle. The mother hyssop plants are massive, still in the fullest bloom that you could possibly imagine, the young hyssop cuttings are now pretty massive plants too, they are coming into their full blooming too. The bees cover these plants!!!! And the masses and masses of the Sea Holly are covered in the bees too, it will be still blooming for another couple of weeks.
I have been extremely busy lately with stuff, (whah, whah, I know we are all busy, hee, hee), so I haven't had any time to get out and do some picture taking that I want to do to show what stuff is going here. But today is rather overcast, and that is the perfect time for picture taking, so I will endeavour to get out and get some good stuff pictures, hee, hee.
Randy, there MUST be something more appealing to the bees, if they are not covering the hyssop. Also, I wonder if the cultivar of hyssop may be one that is not particularly attractive, no clue about that. The cultivar that I propagate here is called "Blue Fortune" and that it certainly is!!!! Randy, any idea what the "name" of your type is? Just curious.
I think this year I am going to gather some seed from my hyssop Blue Fortune and see if the seed bears true to the parent plant next year. I have a funny feeling that it may be a hybrid, which then the seed grown plants would not come true to the parent. But then, if I wasn't such a lazy girl with some stuff, I would do a little research.....oh dear, get off my butt.....I will check it out and see if my hyssop is a hybrid or not, one day. If the plant is not a hybrid, I will have seed galore that I would be willing to spread around the universe for those that would request it, hee, hee. I think that judging by the size of the plants I might have 40 billion seeds, hee, hee. Have a beautiful, most wonderful and awesomely great and fabulous day. Cindi
