Ageratum - Floss Flowers

An old favorite with its fluffy round clusters, Ageratum (Floss Flower) is one of the few annuals to tolerate light shade. A nonstop bloomer from summer to fall (Ageratum means 'long-lived' in Greek), it grows easily in shapely mounds ranging from 6-24 in. tall (15-60 cm) and mixes extraordinarily well with all other annuals and perennials. Its colors range from blue, purple, lavender to pink, red, white and bicolor, providing a nice contrast with the rest of the bedding plants. It is deer, rabbit resistant and attracts butterflies.
