Agastache ‘Blue Fortune’

3 agastash almost blooming may 30

Licorice Mint Hyssop, Sunset Hyssop

Get this. A perennial that has a fine texture in both flower and foliage. All summer hummingbird appreciate its nectar-rich flowers and for that reason I cut if back by about a 5th every few weeks to keep the blooms coming. Very drought tolerant, it loves a hot, sunny spots in well-drained soil. Place it in the middle or the back of a perennial bed as it get a little over 3′ high and about 3′ wide. As usual, because it is such a solid performer, I suggest buying 4-6 in a smaller size and planting them in a group 3′ on center. USDA Zones 5 to 7.
