LetsPlantify.com is pleased to offer native wildflowers like Blue Mist Flower (Eupatorium celestinum) to plant lovers across the United States. Also known as Ageratum, Blue Bonnet and Boneset, this is a very special blue-violet perennial that simply shines in the late summer and fall garden.
Used extensively in wildlife gardens and natural habitat restoration efforts, each tiny blossom is an enchanting cushion, surrounded by filaments of an ethereal color best described as electric periwinkle.
One fairy-sized bloom all by itself? You would hardly notice it. But because each bloom is clustered together with 30 others in a charming umbel, the whole becomes much greater than the sum of the parts. Multiple umbels develop along the side of the plant, so the flowers just keep coming through the summer and fall.
A magical flower!
This airy plant grabs your eye with its lovely little blooms. Plant one on either side of a path to greet your guests. Or devote a sunny corner to a stand of them. Butterflies, including monarchs and fritillaries will come to call again and again
Because this is a native wildflower, in some areas it may perform a little "too well". You are protected with our subscription to Plant Sentry™, which helps us comply with all local and state regulations for regionally invasive plants.
