Blue Fortune Agastache
Agastache ‘Blue Fortune’
Also called Hummingbird Mint, this native perennial is grown for its showy blooms and lightly scented foliage. It grows 2 to 3 feet tall and 18 to 24 inches wide. Spikes of lavender-blue flowers appear on upright stems throughout the summer.
The flowers attract a variety of pollinators, including hummingbirds and butterflies. They will rebloom more vigorously if deadheaded. The leaves are bright green with a mild mint scent.
This plant prefers full sun to light shade. It will grow in a range of soils except for wet soils and may not survive the winter where soils remain wet. It is drought tolerant once established. This plant works well in mixed perennial borders, prairie gardens, and pollinator gardens.
