Award-winning Agastache ‘Blue Fortune’ is a long-blooming summer perennial. This Anise Hyssop has a delicious licorice fragrance and gorgeous, lavender-blue bottlebrush flowers that appear from July - September. It is a vigorous grower and blooms on strong, upright stems. 

Blue Fortune Anise is an easy-to-care-for, low-maintenance, and rewarding perennial. It has an upright habit, growing 3-4 ft tall with a 2-4 ft spread at a medium growth rate. Hardy in zones 5 - 8. When you crush its foliage, it has a distinctive, pleasant aroma of licorice. The sage-green, fragrant leaves can be used in teas or potpourri. Often referred to as Hummingbird Mint, this deer- and rabbit-resistant perennial attracts butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees. The dried seed heads can be left on for added visual interest and self-seeding if desired. 

Blue Fortune Anise Care

This hyssop thrives in full sun, planted in well-drained soil, but it's not too fussy about its watering needs. It will tolerate drier soils once the plant is established. Avoid planting hyssop in heavy clay or poorly draining soils because this can lead to crown rot. Blue Fortune can be planted in larger containers, which will allow for its large spread.

You can remove dried spent blooms or leave them on the plant for additional interest. You can cut off and sprinkle the dried seed heads around the base of the plant in the fall for a fuller plant the following year. Cut back the faded foliage close to the ground after the 1st freeze. 

Blue Fortune Anise Spacing

Use this North American native as a medium-to-tall border plant, in a cut-flower bed, or grouped in a mass planting. It has an extended bloom time of up to 4 weeks and looks amazing in cottage, eclectic, and butterfly/pollinator gardens.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
