Comments: This is a native wildflower that produces misty-blue flowers and is found on highway rights-of-way, ditches, wildflower meadows, and recently cutover land where pioneer species like the mist flower establish themselves early. The flowers are quite similar to ageratum. Plants spread by stolons and can form large colonies in a relatively short time. Delay mowing during the summer months in areas where this wildflower is found because it produces tall stalks during the summer months before blooming.
