Botanical Name: Agastache 'Blue Fortune'A wonderful late summer bloomer bred by Geert Fortgens of the Arboretum Trompenberg in Rotterdam, Holland. When it first came to the U.S., most growers labeled it as zone 5 hardy, but it has overwintered very well here in the Twin Cities. It is loaded with blue-violet flower spikes from late July through September, and the butterflies and bumblebees love it. The foliage has a lovely fragrance. Likes full sun and is tolerant of drought and heat stress. Plant it next to Rudbeckia 'Goldsturm' for a classic blue and gold combination.
