Notes:

Trying to replace these plants. Small blue flowers that come out late in the season, September through frost, shade tolerant. Mom accidentally weeded these out before they could bloom. Want exact replacement. Ruled out Astilbe. What are these?

    Looks like the same plant that the person from Marieta asked about: http://www.walterreeves.com/name-that-plant/new-plant-in-my-yard/ If this plant is conoclinium coelestinum, it will probably come back from missed roots. Hardy ageratum has a healthy spreading root system… and I weed it back to keep it in check… as gorgeous as a large patch of this stuff is… it is possible to have too much of a good thing… This plant thrives in a wet garden… Doesn’t spread as much in a dry garden… You’ll probably need to go to a wildflower rescue group or something to replace this plant… It’s a common native, but I can’t recall ever seeing it offered in the big box stores….

    Floss flower: genus ageratum. http://www.finegardening.com/floss-flower-ageratum I am not sure of the variety.
