Agastache ’Blue Fortune’ (Hummingbird Mint) has begun to bloom. It gets lavender blue, bottle-brush like flowers mid July and goes on blooming all the way though September.
The foliage is deep-green with a touch of silver. It looks wonderful together with the foliage of brunnera or other silver-colored perennials like lamb’s ear or lavender.
Agastache ’Blue Fortune’ prefers full sun, although it’s doing well in my garden where it only gets 5-6 h of sun. It’s drought tolerant, has a minty liquorice scent and gets about 2-3 feet (70cm) tall.
It’s the most popular perennial in my garden for bees and butterflies!
