Blue Fortune Anise Hyssop

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.

Plant Features:

  • Height: 3 - 3'
  • Spread: 2 - 3'
  • Zone: 4 - 9

When I shopped at Zehr’s I was greeted by a worker with the friendly, “Is there anything I can help you with?” greeting and then escorted to the area where the specific shrub I was looking for was located. It saved me time and I greatly appreciated that!

Very quick with estimating, designing and completing our work. Final total even came in a little less. Guys worked fast and hard and did an amazing job on our flower gardens and planting new trees. Friendly, fast and efficient workers! I would highly recommend Zehr's Flowers and Landscaping!!!!
