What Houzz contributors are saying:

Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Central Plains Gardener's September Checklist
Plant now for next fall. Low-growing blue mistflower (Eupatorium coelestinum) is a good filler for late-season blooms after early plants have fizzled out. It will take medium to moist soil and slowly spread, bringing in butterflies along the way. Another late-summer filler plant is Black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia spp), which will not give any Susans you know a black eye.

Eupatorium coelestinum comes in white- and purple-blooming varieties. Shown here is 'Gateway' (zones 5 to 10), which reaches about 2 feet tall. Although it spreads more aggressively than other Eupatorium, it is very easily ripped out of the soil and divided.Again, insects adore it, and this species gets reliable yellow fall color. Plant it in full to partial sun in pretty much any soil. I have some divisions in dry shade, where it's less aggressive and nothing else can grow.
