Ageratum 'High Tide Blue'

Genus: Ageratum.

Species: Ageratum houstonianum.

This lovely blue beauty is easy resilient and creates perfect clouds of blue in the border. This variety is of medium height, about 12 inches, and bloom from start of season to the end. Spent flowers were a bit unsughtly so I removed them, but if left in a mild climate, they could reseed if left. This was a nice shining light amidst other plants more in the green or with seasonal perrenials to give color before and after blooming. It was a bit odd like a cockscomb but well worth adding to any border. :-)
