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
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.

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.
Most Liked Negative Review
I planted it in midAugust, so perhaps it didn't have time to establish enough roots before the frost.

Adequate but not great
from Brighton, CO
About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Agastache Blue Fortune:
True, the bees absolutely LOVE this plant; however, both the foliage and blooms become faded and unsightly as the season progresses. I had 3 of them and have replaced all 3 with Blue Blazes and am glad I did. Blue Blazes blooms longer, retains better color longer into the fall, and flops-sprawls less.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Critter-proof as advertised, strong grower
from Klamath Falls, OR
This was one of the few plants I used last year that the deer and rabbits left alone. Plant was over 12" tall by the end of the season. Can't wait to see how much bigger it gets this year!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
very succesful in my bee garden
from Pueblo, CO
See all my reviews
This plant has been so successful and grew much larger than anticipated. I will have to move it to give it more room and stop it from crowding my other plants. I love the scent, bees and butterflies flock to it

Only one I've found that likes the south
from Beaufort, SC
About Me Master Gardener
I grew up in California and long for some of the plants from the arid southwest. I now live in the coastal southeast. It's wet and humid here in the summer. Most agastaches HATE it here and won't survive, except Blue Fortune. It thrives and is lovely.

Just like the catalog says
By No, thank you
from Minneapolis, MN
Part of an Agastache "experiment" to see what would do well in my Zone 4 garden, this blue variety grew rapidly, and just like the catalog says, it was quite popular with pollinators. In late January, it's far too early to tell if it will survive the winter and re-emerge in the spring. I was unimpressed with the color – too pale to suit my tastes - but the bees didn't care about that, and flocked to the plant all summer long.
