Description

Agastache 'Blue Fortune' Hummingbird Mint is an impressively long-bloomer with spikes of lavender-blue flowers from midsummer to early fall. It provides a pop of color when other perennials are fading. Agastache can be deadheaded to promote even more blooming.

It's not hard to see why this plant is called Hummingbird Mint! 'Blue Fortune' is a hit with hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees.

Agastache gets another one of its common names, Anise Hyssop, from its minty-licorice fragrance. The scent repels deer, but smells wonderful to us.

Whether you know it as Hummingbird Mint or Anise Hyssop, Agastache ' Blue Fortune' is a must-have for sunny pollinator gardens and showy borders.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
