Eupatorium Coelestinum

Conoclinium coelestinum, the blue mistflower, is a North American species of herbaceous perennial flowering plant in the sunflower family. It was formerly classified in the genus Eupatorium, but phylogenetic analyses in the late 20th century research indicated that that genus should be split, and the species was reclassified in Conoclinium. (Source: )Conoclinium coelestinum can reach a height of about 90 cm (3 ft). It has opposite leaves, almost triangular-shaped. On the top this, the plant forms clusters of bright blue, violet or white flower heads, about 5 mm (1⁄4 in) long. It flowers from July to November."Conoclinium coelestinum".

Mistflower, Conoclinium coelestinum, is covered with fuzzy tufts of blue-violet flowers for at least five weeks from late summer until frost. Around two feet high, Mistflower spreads to form a dense ground cover, or large patch, in partially shaded settings with moist well-drained soils. It also does well in full sun, given adequate moisture. A vigorous spreader by rhizome and seed, Mistflower can be thinned in early spring to control its spread on smaller sites. Otherwise it may be better suited for settings where it has some freedom to spread. Also known as Wild Ageratum, it is native to the east and southeastern United States. Plant with Blue Stemmed Goldenrod and White Woodland Aster, for a colorful fall pollinator buffet. Eupatorium coelestinum 'Wayside Variety' is derived from a perennial native to the eastern half of the United States that closely resembles Ageratum. Wayside Variety mistflower grows up to 15 inches in height and features sky-blue flowers that attract butterflies but repel deer. A great perennial for Chicago area gardeners, this plant is tolerant of wet clay soils and blooms from mid-summer through fall.
