Ageratum houstonianum - Flossflower

Ageratum houstonianum, also called flossflower is among the very few blue flowers, blooming at this time of the year. Their abundant clusters of small, fluffy flowers are in colors that range from deep blues to lavender.

Ageratums bloom from early summer through fall.

They look beautiful in landscape, in containers and baskets, as well as in my 100th post of this blog.

Thank you for reminding me how much I love ageratums. I used to have them where I lived years ago, but haven't had any in ages. I'm going to have to get some next year!

Great clarity in these shots. I have tried photographing these flowers and am not happy with the results so far.

Congratulations Maia on your 100th post. I have not grown these annuals for years. I'm sick looking at impatiens and surfinias this summer in my containers - I think these would be nice next year to grow. Lovely photos and the colours are just so perfect.

Congratulations on your 100th post. Quite an accomplishment. And that flower is beautiful. They look all soft and fluffy.

Congratulations on post 100 and fantastic image. I think I'm going to look for these to add to our garden next year. They're beautiful.

We also need a few asters too.

Thanks for the name of this flower. I grew them in Singapore and knew it as Brazilian button flower.
