Ageratum was introduced to England from Veracruz, Mexico by Dr. William Houston, who first collected the species in the 1700s. This reliable summer border favorite has handsome foliage and clusters of long-blooming fuzzy flowers that can withstand summer rains. When setting out into compost-enriched soil, pinch the plant to promote bushier growth, and mulch to conserve moisture. Deadheading is minimal but helpful to keep it looking fresh into fall.
