Conoclinium coelestinum

blue mist flower (Eupatorium coelestinum)

Producing masses of blue fuzzy flowers from late summer through early fall, this prolific, versatile species is hard to beat. It resists deer browsing, attracts butterflies and bees, and makes for a great cut flower. Given enough sun and moisture, it can spread vigorously, so site accordingly!
