Buy Agastache mexicana 'Red Fortune' (PBR) Mexican giant hyssop: Showy in summer and autumn

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

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

    When in flower (for many months from midsummer), this aromatic perennial is an impressive sight. The flowers are a lush shade of reddish pink, with just a hint of purple, and they seem to mix with just about everything. They also appear in abundance and will help attract beneficial pollinators including bees. 'Red Fortune' is a low maintenance plant, that is happiest in a sunny, slightly sheltered spot with freely draining soil.

  • Garden care: They can be short-lived, but are easily propagated by semi-ripe cuttings in early summer. Avoid excessive winter wet and don't cut back the faded flower-stems in until early spring, as they provide interest in the winter months.

Bought this plant late summer last year and it was still in flower until the frosts in early February. The leaves are still green. Good plant for all year round effect.
