Gardeners' Notes:

Positive coriaceous On May 29, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

This is a great ornamental perennial as well as an herb, tough, adaptable, and exceptionally long-blooming. The lavender-violet corolla color is a little deeper than 'Blue Fortune', and instead of a dense, bottle-brush inflorescence, the flowers are more loosely spaced along a much longer spike. The stems and leaves have a variable purple tint (varying from one season to the next), and the leaves are smaller than those of the other hardy agastaches. All of these features make this a more attractive plant than 'Blue Fortune', in my eyes. None of them is captured in the photos.

I also like the foliage fragrance. Bees and butterflies like the flowers, too.

Long-lived and hardy here (Boston Z6a) in half-day sun and ordinary loamy garden soil (good drainage but not rock garden conditions). Blooms from late June till frost.

Stems are tall (3-5') and need no staking.

I have observed no self-sowing.

This is a great plant. 2007 was my first year to grow it and it bloomed from late June to frost.

This plants flowers are a vivid lavendar-purple that a photo cannot do justice to. This is my first year growing it. At this rate it is going to be my favorite agastache. I like that I can use the leaves for tea as well!
