WHAT FLORIDA NATIVE PLANT IS BLOOMING TODAY?: BLUE MISTFLOWER (Conoclinium coelestinum)
not to be confused with nonnative annual ageratum (Ageratum conyzoides) sold as a bedding plant for flower gardens.
Can be aggressive as it self seeds, but provides nectar for bees and butterflies, especially late in the season when not a lot of other things are blooming. Seeds are favored by birds.
