How To Grow Pretty Floss Flower In Your Garden

Have you all heard of Floss Flower or Ageratum houstonianum? This low-water stunner has been blooming for weeks and sends up the fuzziest little lavender flower poofs. Native to Central American, Ageratum grows in mounds and forms medium green heart-shaped leaves, topped with a carpet of blooms from late spring through fall. Easy to grow in containers or garden beds, the plant takes almost no care other than dead-heading. The variety pictured is ‘Blue Horizon’, which has iridescent purple flowers that nearly glow in the garden. Bees and butterflies love the blooms. It grows about 3 feet tall, with stems long enough to cut for bouquets. Get this beautiful bloom for your own garden and enjoy!
