Congratulations ;) The Conoclinium coelestinum (and that's a mouthful) is pretty, it looks almost like a perennial ageratum.

I have a couple of helleborus foetidus seeds sprouting this week so hopefully the others will follow. These were seeds I'd purchased and they weren't moist packed, I'm never sure if I'll get germination the first spring with dry stored seeds or if I'll be waiting another year but these seem to be responding. I needed them for a difficult spot, the deer don't eat helleborus foetidus :)

Nice Morz8! Helleborus SHOULD be on my list then LOL!

Oh and C. coelestinum IS also known as Perennial Ageratum. Just like you say though....they only look similar but are all-together separate species :)
I did w'sow annual Ageratum-Floss Flower a few years back and they were amazing in color!! I just loved them!! Just hope I can keep this perennial variety in check since we live in the Clearwater-Nez Perze National Forest and sure would hate to let loose a non-western US/ID native.....eek!

So Helleborus hmmm? Glad to hear it
