Agastache Blue Fortune

Is Agastache late to emerge in spring? There's no sign of life on mine yet but perhaps it's too early.

    I think Blue Fortune tends to be rather short lived. They don't like the ground too soggy, so if you've had a rather wet winter it may have perished.  Having said that, they are late to emerge in my garden, around late April if l recall correctly.

    My Agastache, in others varieties are not showing yet, they, and Salvias and Veronica’s are always late shooting here.

    Thanks, I'll leave it alone and hope some shoots eventually emerge. It was only planted last year. The soil is pretty well drained so fingers crossed.

    Don’t give up, give them another month,  my Apricot Sprite and Lavender have nothing on them at all, yet, they will though.

    My agastache black adder is only just showing and I’m probably a few weeks ahead, climate-wise. I get so impatient, peering at things and admonishing them for not showing up yet.

    Shoots have appeared! Funny looking little things they are.

    My blue fortune seeds that someone on the seed swap gave me have all germinated.

    This year I was more patient (especially with the cold spring we've had) but my Agastache seems to have put up a paltry number of new shoots this year. Think the slugs may have been at it. One of the two decent sized shoots is weirdly fasciated. Think it's time to replace.
