Eupatorium coelestinum

Hardy Ageratum

  • Flowers attract bees, butterflies, and skippers
  • Easy to grow, flowers from mid-summer into autumn
  • Makes a great groundcover
  • Attracts insects favored by birds
The fuzzy blue flowers of hardy ageratum top attractive red stems in late summer and early fall. Easy to grow, it naturalizes readily and works well as a filler or groundcover planting. Its brilliant blue flowers make a unique and long-lasting cut flower. In warmer zones and loose soils, plan for quite a bit of spreading.
