(aka: Ageratina altissima 'Chocolate') Everyone has fallen in love with this border-sized perennial from Dr. Dick Lighty, retired director of the Mt. Cuba Center. This fabulous selection of our native snakeroot, Eupatorium rugosum, has purple foliage that holds its color all summer, instead of the typical green. In very early fall, the 4' tall clumps of this moisture-lover are topped with nice broccoli-sized heads of small white flowers...destined for greatness in Europe, as happens to all of our wonderful native plants!
