How to grow

How To Grow Ageratum From Seed: Start the Ageratum flower seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the end of frost season. Transplant outdoors after danger of frost. For areas with a long growing season, Ageratum seeds can be started directly outdoors in a prepared seedbed after all danger of frost has passed.

Blooms are extraordinarily long-lived, dead heading is necessary to encourage a second flowering, yet infrequent. Grow in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in full sun, in a sheltered site. Water freely in midsummer to prolong flowering.
