Ageratum, Mix

94% of 100

A lovely cottage garden favorite! This annual is native to Central America, and seeds were collected by W. Houstoun, a Scottish botanist and surgeon who sailed to the Americas in the 1720s. Ageratum soon became a beloved ornamental in Europe and America. The Latin name ageratum means ‘long lived,’ a nod to the semi-everlasting behavior of the flowers. This is a mix of the old-fashioned pastel tones of lavender, plum, blue, and white. A perfect choice for pollinator gardens, ageratum flowers make a lot of nectar and support beneficial insect populations.
