How to Say Blue Fortune Agastache
Plant Features

Blue Fortune Agastache Plants feature sky-blue flowering spikes that are borne profusely on taller upright plants. Butterflies and bees are mesmerized by its nectar! The medium green, fragrant foliage smells like black licorice when crushed. It offers a long flowering season, heat and drought tolerance, and scented foliage. Removing the spent flowers keeps it blooming longer. Giant Hyssop grows well on a wide range of well-drained soils, though it is short lived on damp clay. 

Common Names: Hummingbird Mint, Giant Hyssop, Rock Anise Hyssop, Licorice Mint

Agastache Companion Plants: Geranium, Monarda, Nepeta

Blue Fortune Agastache Plant Care: Keep the plant well-watered for the first 4-5 weeks. After that, only water if the plant starts looking droopy. Leave the spent flowers on the plant throughout the winter as birds enjoy eating the seeds. It can be cut back to around 6 inches from the ground in early spring before the new growth starts. This is also a good time to apply fertilizer for the year.

Comment: Love this plant. Ordered two, and they did so well, I ordered a bunch more. They all arrived healthy and blooming, and became established quickly. Had hummingbirds in the yard for the first time ever within weeks!
