AGERATUM – Red Flint

$2.95

A very unusual and striking Ageratum variety

Even people who know their plants usually think of Ageratums as being blue, pink, or white. But Red Flint bucks the system with its near-red powderpuff blooms. It’s a tall grower, even taller than Dondo White, so it makes a great background for lower growing flowering plants. Cut a few stems for the vase as you’ll find they last quite well in bouquets. With so much going for it, you may think that this plant is difficult to grow from seed, but it’s as easy as pie.
