Details
36" tall x 18" wide (cutting propagated). An introduction from Europe, Agastache 'Blue Fortune' is proving to be a robust, nonstop bloomer! The husky 5" long flower spikes are a mesmerizing powder blue. The large green leaves are striking with their silver undersides. Later in the season, as the plant matures, it develops a light mint scent to the flowers. Like Korean Hyssop, this cultivar will also perform well outside of the West in the wetter winter climates of the Midwest and East. Try Blue Fortune together with Salvia Maraschino.

Planting Guides

Agastache need lean, well-drained soils, prefer gravel mulches, and appreciate deep but infrequent watering after their second growing season. To improve winter-hardiness, and encourage re-seeding, leave the stems intact over the winter. In mid-spring, remove old stems just above the new foliage, about 4 or 5 inches above ground level. Fertilize the Agastache once in fall with Yum Yum Mix and Planters II.

Tips for growing Agastache

  1. Provide a fast draining soil that's naturally low in fertility,
  2. Plant in full hot sun.
  3. Don't over amend their soil with too much rich compost.
  4. Don't over-fertilize your plant.
  5. New transplants need regular irrigation their first growing season to establish themselves. Resist the temptation to over-water established plants.
