A low maintenance choice for the garden, Blue Fortune Anise-Hyssop is easily grown in full sun, in average-to-dry, or well-drained soils. It can tolerate poor, acidic soil but performs best in alkaline environments – a great choice for Wisconsin! This cultivar is more tolerant of cold winters than other Agastache, resulting from a cross between Agastache rugosa and Agastache foeniculum (Blue Giant Hyssop).
When combined with other perennials, planted in drifts, or along fences and borders, Blue Fortune Anise-Hyssop adds texture, height, color, and drama to any garden, especially later in the season when other perennials have faded. Valued by florists for their height and line, cut flowers are great in bouquets or for dried arrangements.
