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. Plant with Blue Stemmed Goldenrod and White Woodland Aster, for a colorful fall pollinator buffet.

Also known as Wild Ageratum, Mistflower is native to the east and southeastern United States. In northern areas, Mistlfower can be late to emerge in the spring – as late as June, in partial shade.
