Ageratum, a long-popular bedding plant, is becoming increasingly popular as a cut flower due to its pom-pom-shaped flower heads and large, dark green foliage.
Also known as blue mink and silk flowers, these flowering plants usually grow up to two feet tall. A genus of about 50 species of annual plants that belong to the Asteraceae family, Ageratum is native to Central America, with some species found in North America.
These thread-like flowering plants grow slowly and have attractive flowers in beautiful whites, pinks, reds, blues, and purples.
The small, fluffy flower clusters bloom in fall and Summer, making them an excellent addition to any landscape.
