Q.Will Blue Fortune Agastache Grow True From Seed?

Zone 60040 | Mike Affinito added on December 10, 2019 | Answered

I’m saving seed from my Blue Fortune plants and wondering if I’ll be able to grow plants from seed. Will I get the same plant, a different plant, or is the variety sterile?

You will probably get a hybrid. In order to obtain true seeds, there must not be any insects, or bees to pollinate with any other variety that is around.

Usually, this can be done indoors, where the only plant in the area will be your target species

You can still plant your seeds, and expect a plant that has its own, unique look to it, though.
