Lyn, it is a sterile,agastache...thus a very long flowering variety.  Heatwave.  

Runny, that hydrangea was planted late winter. it is now over 120 cm tall with more to come. In future years it will be 200 cm with annual pruning. Those huge flowers will turn white. I love it.  

I have another, Kyushu, which is slightly different but pure white right now and this is delightful.

Tracey...I do this sort of thing all the time....not recommended strictly though 

cut some of the stems back so they are sturdy and not flopping.  watering well is important.  Looks like hot weather for a while again so place comtainer in shady spot for a day or two. 

Oh yes!  Lots of time left for dahlias to flower.....well into the autumn

i would liquid feed too in a few days

You have the wrong plant thrifty mama.

correct me if wrong but Virginal is double flowered.

lovely scent but only for 3 weeks or so.

choisya ternata may be a better bet??  Scented flowers from early evergreen glossy aromatic foliage......?
