Flowers Make a House a Home

My Father said, "Flowers make a house a home. " How true....the happiness of pretty flowers . Ageratum are a great cut flower because they last longer than I expected. Their softness fits in small spaces.

These larger ageratum are wonderful in planters initially as they "fillers" but later on, as the "spillers" in pots. Lots of blue and they last a long time. Just starting to need to dead head and they've been blooming since early May!

I love the color blue in my garden beds and this blue is amazing! I love it so much I shared some of the seeds with a friend. Almost every seed I started in my basement germinated which made for much blue in my border bed!

Zone 7a. I started these indoors in February and transplanted to the garden in mid April. The blossoms make a big impact in the garden and draw pollinators. They were still blooming in late November.
