Commonly called flossflower, Ageratum houstonianum is an anual native to Mexico planted for its tassel-like flowers. Flowering from midsummer until frost, available colors are shade of blue, pink, or white. Many series of cultivars exist. Usually performs well in full sun. However in hot-summered climates flossflower will need filtered sun. In mild winter climates, it may provide winter color. Use in annual beds or container gardens.
