Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
AGASTACHE 'Blue Fortune'
Anise Hyssop, Blue Fortune Giant Hyssop, Blue Hyssop
Blue fortune hyssop is a popular hardy perennial that is easy to grow and moderately drought tolerant. This strongly aromatic member of the mint family has an upright habit and downy, medium green, licorice-scented leaves. From mid to late summer, tall stems topped with dense spikes of lavender-blue flowers appear. Highly attractive to bees and butterflies, this plant will continue blooming into fall if deadheaded. Blue fortune hyssop is tolerant of poor soils and an excellent choice for sunny mixed borders and informal wildflower gardens. It can also be dried and used to make herbal tea.
