Blue Fortune Hyssop
Licorice Fragrance in Blue Spikes
Hyssop Blue Fortune, Agastache 'Blue Fortune', originates from the Greek word aga, meaning "very much," and stachys, meaning "spikes," referring to the many flower spikes.
As one of the easiest and most rewarding perennials to grow, this award winning 'Blue Fortune' is a tremendously long bloomer! 'Blue Fortune' is useful for adding a spot of color to the garden late in the season when many other plants are finished.
Hummingbird Mint, as it's also known as, has foliage that smells distinctly like black licorice when crushed.
This variety of Hyssop is more tolerant of cold winters and wet soil. ‘Blue Fortune’ needs full sun to light shade and dry to medium soil. Peak bloom occurs in midsummer and attracts butterflies.
If you'd like to restrict the height of this tall perennial, pinch back its blue-green foliage in spring before the flower buds are formed.
Plant this handsome low-maintenance clumping perennial in a sunny location. You can enjoy its long lasting blooms and color, especially late in the season when other plants begin to fade!
