C. hyssopifolia is a compact, bushy spreading evergreen shrub to 45cm in height, with small oblong shaped dark green leaves resemble those of Scotch heather (genus Calluna also known by its synonym Erica) and are about 3/4 to 1 in long and 1/4 to 1/2 in wide. They are arranged alternately the length of the stems giving the plant a fern like appearance. In tropical climates small clusters of tiny light purple flowers 1cm across merge from the axils (the points where the leaf attaches to a stem) to create a show of color that lasts for much of the year.
Tolerates many soil types but requires ample moisture to become established in full sun or semi-shade.
Prefers well-drained fertile soils with frequent light fertilization. When plant becomes scraggly, tips can be pinched to incorporate vigour and to attain lush growth and more blooms.

Plants with thin leaves need daily watering and ones with thick leaves need watering 3-4 times a week. This will also depend on the season. Generally during the blooming period, plants love a lot of water. Try keeping the soil moist. During winters it is better to cut back on watering.
Keep the plants in a well drained soil with a drainage hole at the bottom. This will help to avoid over watering. Take care as to not leave stagnant water on top of the soil. Fertilise the plant once in 2-3 weeks during its blooming period. Do not fertilise it in winters.
