Agastache ‘Blue Fortune’


USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.025.030

A long-blooming selection for the middle to back of the border, featuring wands of dusky violet-blue flowers. Plants form a compact bush of licorice-scented green leaves. Both the flowers and leaves are edible and fun to sprinkle into salads. Attractive to butterflies. Removing faded blooms will help to lengthen the flowering time. Especially attractive in combination with Rudbeckia or Purple Coneflower. This is a hybrid between a native North American wildflower and Agastache rugosa, so this could be a good choice for natural meadow gardens. Easily divided in spring.
