Ageratum (Ageratum Mexicanum Pink) - Hundreds of showy cushion-like blooms are on this pink Ageratum. Grown readily from flower seeds, these annuals reach about 12 inches tall and are great for either beds or containers. Start Ageratum seeds and have blooms all summer, and the butterflies will love them! Also known as Floss Flower, these annuals make excellent fresh cut flowers. The more you cut, the more flowers the plant produces. The bloom has a long vase life, and it also dries well. To dry, cut when bloom is still tight and hang to dry indoors out of direct light. Once dried, Ageratum flowers are useful in wreaths and arrangements.
