The leaves taste like anise or licorice. Anise hyssop isn t strictly speaking a perennial but it reliably self seeds so once you plant a few you ll have them year after year. Chives are another favorite perennial. You can cut just a few leaves and chop them into one-inch lengths for a salad and don t forget to use some of the chive blossoms as well. While we re on the onion family don t forget to use a few garlic greens - the leafy green tops of your garlic plants and the florets as well. But go easy on the garlic as a little goes a long way.
