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.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Agastache Blue Fortune:

    I had seen this variety of agastache in a book by Oudolf & Kingsbury "Planting - A New Perspective" and was charmed by it but was tentative about trying because all the gardens in the book were back east and in Europe but since it was an agastache I figured why not give it a chance. OMG! When it bloomed it far exceeded my expectations. Absolutely a beautiful and hardy plant in North Central Arizona.

      Tips for growing Agastache

      Agastache are sun loving plants with aromatic foliage and flowers. They bloom from mid-summer into early fall and are resistant to rabbits and deer.

      Agastache need lean, well-drained soils, prefer gravel mulches, and appreciate deep but infrequent watering after their second growing season

      1. Provide a fast draining soil that's naturally low in fertility, Don't plant into clay soils.
      2. Plant in full hot sun.
      3. Just a few handfuls of compost in the planting hole is enough. Don't plant into a rich, highly amended soil..
      4. Fertilize the Agastache just once in fall with Yum Yum Mix and Planters II.
      5. New transplants need regular irrigation their first growing season to establish themselves. Watering can be reduced greatly during the second growing season when the plants have matured.

      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.

      If your conditions don't lend themselves to growing Agastache in your garden, they do well planted in containers.
