Beauty in Flower

Purple Flossflower
Ageratum hybrid
I love driving by and seeing the beautiful wild flowers in the fields, they seem to lay in oceans of blooms beauty is what I see. This type of flower has also became popular in the beds of many home gardens. They stand alone well, can be used as border and are easy to use in theme gardens as well.

The beauty of this flower to me lays in the small , fluffy, purple button like flowers. It helps to add color to all seasons as it continuous blooms or keeps re-blooming. The plant is heat tolerant and deadheading is not necessary. Looking to attract visitors to your garden? You have found the right plant as birds, butterflies, and hummingbirds all are attracted. Annual that is native to North America. Medium height  standing an average 8 to 12 inches. When planted their should be about 10 to 12 inches separating the plants as they like to spread out a few inches as they grow. As you can see the beauty in the plant with flowers of purple and green foliage helps it to work great as a filler plant blending in amongst your favorite plants. Grows well in an area with partial to full sun and very easy to maintain.
