EUPATORIUM

These are generally large plants with big domes of small flower heads that are rich in nectar and pollen. Blossoms attract butterflies. Most of the species (including two of the four described here) are wild plants of eastern U.S. meadows, little noted until recently but now popular in perennial borders and naturalistic meadow plantings.

Eupatorium rugosum

From eastern U.S. To 4 ft. tall, 2 ft. wide. Stems and lance-shaped leaves to 5 in. long are heavily marked with deep brownish red. Fluffy white flowers in late summer and early fall.
