     Many of species eupatorium could be used in gardens but

they can become weeds.  The species listed is most  suitable

for garden culture.                                         

     Eupatorium coelestinum--Mistflower, Hardy Ageratum     

     Mistflower produces violet blue flowers which look like

those of annual ageratum.  These can be used as a cut flower

and  can be dried if cut just before they open.   The  plant

grows  in full sun to partial shade and in any  well-drained

garden  soil.  These plants start growth late in the  spring

so mark their growing area.                                 

     Propagation  is  by division in spring or fall,  or  by

cuttings  taken in spring.  Division may be needed  to  keep

the plant under control.
