Well Worth Buying Review by Karen G | Zone: 7a
Quality
I purchased this plant when it first came out, and now it is over 5 ft. tall! Blue Fortune is THE favorite plant in my garden for bees and butterflies, and the Goldfinches adore the seeds in the early fall. That's all anyone needs to know to see that it's well worth buying. (Posted on 1/12/2012)

Homeowner Tips
Agastache is native to the southwest US and Mexico. It grows well in slightly alkaline soils. The most essential aspect is good drainage. This plant will NOT tolerate wet soil, especially in the winter. It is naturally heat and drought tolerant. It is cherished by herb gardeners for it scented foliage and edible flowers. Propagation is by stem cuttings or division.
