Product Details

Robust Agastache 'Blue Fortune' is a mass of soft powder-blue flower spikes from July to frost, making it a magnet for butterflies and admiring visitors alike. The well-branched stems require no cutting back as the season progresses, and they are a great addition to bouquets. Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Agastache is a genus of about 30 aromatic species native to central and eastern Asia, Mexico, and the United States. Careful breeding and selection have given us newcomers that offer exceptional garden performance and a long season of bloom. In full sun and well-drained soil, they happily shrug off summer heat and early frosts.

How to use (AR) Augmented Reality to see this item in your garden

1. Make sure your device has a camera and is connected to the internet. If you want to see the item in your garden and are on your computer, click the 3D Model image on your computer and a QR code will open that will allow you to open the link on your device.

2. Once you have clicked the 3D Model image on your device, go outside and face your device camera toward where you would like to see how the item will look in your garden.

3. To see the item in your own garden, click on the [AR] link in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. You might need to wait a few seconds for the AR experience to load. This only works from a device with a camera such as a mobile phone or a tablet.

4. Allow your device to access the camera, if prompted.

5. Point your device's camera at the area where you want to place the plant or garden.

6. The website will use Augmented Reality to place a virtual image of the item in the space you are looking at through your device’s camera. You can adjust the position of the virtual item by using two fingers to resize the item, or one finger to move the item around the screen, until you're satisfied with how it looks. To get an accurate sense of the size of this item, we recommend measuring out the area where you would like to plant it (the spacing for this item is 15"), and staking or flagging the borders so that you will have an accurate idea for the mature size of the item while using AR (the magnifier only enlarges the 3D model of the item, it does not change the actual size of the item). The 3D model represents a mature plant that is approximately 3 years old.

7. Move your device around to view the item from different angles and get a better idea of how it will look in your garden.

8. Once you have everything lined up, take a screenshot or tap the screen to show the AR experience controls and press the white circle to take a photo of the AR image to save it for future reference.

9. If you decide to purchase the item, you can use the AR image as a reference for placement in your garden.




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Reliable and Loveable Favorite

If I had enough room for only one plant, it would be this one. 30"stems, herby-fragrant leaves and a pollinator, butterfly and hummingbird magnet. The goldfinches adore them and feed their young with the fresh, milky seeds. I hear them chirping and twittering sweetly as they forage. A pure joy. They are tough, unfussy, will grow almost anywhere and look lovely in containers. No staking ever needed, since their 4-sided stems are upright and strong.I look forward to seeing their very pretty leaves popping out in late winter. They are so brave.

Gorgeously solid citizen!

Planted one of these last fall and this summer it is incredibly healthy, standing 3.5 feet tall, replete with blooms. Seems to require basically no attention, lovely upright habit. Looking forward to planting more this year!

Incredibily Disappointed

The plant arrived very "weak looking" without much root. Still after babying and pampering them to get them ready to survive the winter. So far they have not returned, and will not do so. They are totally dead, all three plants. We did not even have a severed winter. They were just not formed enough from the root system upwards to be planted and should never have been sold as ready for planting. Wasted $40.80 and now have to turn around and purchase replacements, not from here, naturally.

All of the plants in $185 order I purchased were not ready for planting. Out of the whole order only two of the geraniums Rozanne, have emerged from their winter slumber.

Vigorous grower.

I ordered six of these in the early spring 2019. The root stock came bundled in newsprint paper. To my surprise there were two rootstocks in. Each bundle for a total of 12 plants. I planted them all in a partial sun garden getting afternoon and evening sun for about six hours, and all 12 came up, the tallest reaching 3 feet and have been blooming profusely for a couple of months, attracting bees and butterflies like magnets. I wish the blue boa variety was available... I would plant another patch opposite this one. Great plant, vigorous grower.

It made a comeback!

Yet more awesome! I contacted the WFF horticulturist to find out if Blue Fortune ever made a comeback after dying down from the summer. Our Florida demise is like the winter kill in Connecticut, basically. In other words, no. So imagine my joy at discovering that the last one I ordered, planted with a few ethereal green Nicotiana, is now in early March, making a comeback!!!!! Still, I am ordering another. This time, no blazing sun, no oven-like heat. Hard lesson to lose one of two but Thank God we have a survivor, because this is a truly exceptional plant for bees et alia. Oh yes, & Thank WFF !

Latin Name Pronunciation: ah-gah' stah-kee  

Agastache is a genus of about 30 aromatic species native to central and eastern Asia, Mexico, and the United States: A. foeniculum is native to the United States; A. rugosa is from China and Japan. Careful breeding and selection have given us newcomers that offer exceptional garden performance and a long season of bloom. In full sun and well-drained soil, they happily shrug off summer heat and early frosts.

Light/Watering: Full sun. Some afternoon shade will protect the leaf color of yellow-foliaged Agastaches.

Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Average garden soil that drains well. Do not fertilize the first spring after planting; in subsequent years fertilize once in early spring with 10-10-10 or a layer of well-rotted compost. Acid to neutral pH.

Pests/Diseases: Few insect problems. Mildew can affect the leaves during dry summer weather. Deer generally do not bother Agastache, which is a member of the Mint family.

Companions: Other plants that prefer full sun and well-drained soil make good partners, for example: Milkweed (Asclepias), grasses (especially shorter varieties of Festuca), Yarrow (Achillea), Gaillardia, or Russian Sage (Perovskia). The bushier varieties of Agastache hold their own against most other perennials in a sunny border.

Dividing/Transplanting: Divide in spring if plant has outgrown its space; plant crown at soil level.

Calendar of Care - Agastache

Early Spring: Gradually remove any winter cover. Cut back old stems; large clumps may be divided. Apply one application of balanced 10-10-10 fertilizer or a 1–2″ layer of well-rotted compost (keep at least several inches away from the plant's crown).

End-of-Season Care: Cut stems back half way to protect the plants from damage by winter winds.
