(aka: Eutrochium purpureum) In our trials, we have found Eupatorium 'Little Red' to be one of the best of the Eupatorium purpureum cultivars. The 4' tall stems are topped in midsummer with large heads of rich pink/wine flowers. Eupatorium 'Little Red' is an excellent cultivar, but unfortunately we have been unable to track down its origin...help! We have concluded that Eupatorium 'Little Red' was probably named after a long night at the neighborhood pub when everything appeared red.
