  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: hardy (borderline)

    Two-lipped, lavender-blue flowers form in whorls around the short, upright spike from midsummer to early autumn. These are very attractive to beneficial insects including bees, and if left on the plant will remain interesting well into winter.

  • Garden care: Don't cut back the faded flower-stems in until early spring, as they provide interest in the winter months. Lift and divide congested colonies in spring.

        Comments about Agastache 'Blue Fortune':

        Easy in well-drained soil. Not such a showy flower or as good a blue as 'Blue Boa'.

          The plant grows under a plum tree happily. It is bee friendly, hardy - I have only just cut it back. It ha a bit of an untidy habit but I do not mind that!
