Agastache 'Blue Fortune'
Elegant spikes, laden with soft powder-blue flowers, are held over deliciously fragrant foliage for months on end. Wonderful in the summer garden when combined with other pastel perennials. ‘Blue Fortune’ becomes a perfect companion to the taller coneflowers, mimicking the airy haze of the great American prairies. Flowers can even be added to summer salads for a mild liquorice flavour.
Plant in full sun in a well drained soil. Dry-tolerant once established, though will benefit from supplementary watering during extended dry periods. Regularly deadhead to prolong flowering and prune back to a low mound in early spring.
