DESCRIPTION

The Mist flower is an attractive late season perennial about 3 feet tall with blue flowers. The Mist Flower is also known as Blue Bonnet or Wild Ageratum. It is in the Eupatorium group along with Boneset and Joe Pye Weed, but it is the only one with blue flowers. The plant prefers full sun but is also found in some of our moutain woods. It is a popular plant for home gardens but can become invasive. The flowers first bloom in August and persist for several weeks. The leaves are opposite and paired and are triangular shaped.
