Bluemink (Ageratum houstonianum) is the most popular and most frequently cultivated color variety of the species. Small, clumpy annual plants with highly branched, raised shoots, crowned with dense umbels of lavender-blue flowers, are perfect for beds and in containers. They grow up to a maximum of 10-20 cm, which makes them also great candidates for borders.
Bluemink seeds are sown in spring, most often in pots, mini-pots or under covers. The proposed species is very easy to cultivate: it only needs sun and soil enriched with compost, quite fertile, not drying and not too heavy. In a well-chosen position, the plant blooms from June until the end of summer and the beginning of autumn. It looks beautiful in combination with contrasting colored velvets, colorful pansies and shiny sage.
Ageratum houstonianum, commonly known as flossflower, bluemink, blueweed, pussy foot or Mexican paintbrush, is a cool-season annual plant often grown as bedding in gardens.
