  1. Hi folks, just to clarify since I only know ageratum as an annual, this hardy ageratum is a perennial? Thanks, Mary

  2. THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL PLANT, I BOUGHT IT AS A PERRENIAL PLANT. THE PROBLEM IS IT HAS SPREAD ALL OVER MY GARDEN. NOT TOO HARD TO PULL OUT WHERE NOT WANTED, BUT A LOT TO PULL OUT.
    I WISH I HAD KNOWN IT WOULD SPREAD LIKE THIS.
