Agastache ‘Blue Fortune’

There seems to be a bit of disagreement when it comes to pronouncing Agastache (with the consensus pointing towards ag-ah-STAK-ee), but you’ll get no argument from me about the greatness of ‘Blue Fortune’, a cross between the US native A. foeniculum and the Korean A. rugosum. This is the first time I’ve grown this plant in my garden, and I couldn’t be happier. It quickly grew to three feet tall with continual flower spikes another foot above.  It has completely filled a sunny corner of the front garden, providing nectar to countless bees and other pollinators.

I’d count Agastache ‘Blue Fortune’ among my favorite new plants in this year’s garden.
