Eupatorium rugosum ‘Chocolate’
Perennial
Height: 36"
Light: Full Sun-Part Shade
Zone: 5-9

A little-known species related to the tall Joe-Pye Weed, native to large
areas of eastern North America. This outstanding selection has dark
bronzy-brown leaves in spring and summer, gradually turning green when
the autumn display of fuzzy white flower clusters begins. Useful in
shady situations and will even tolerate dry shade under deciduous trees
once plants are established. Both the foliage and flowers are useful for
cutting. Attractive to butterflies. Clumps may be easily divided in
early spring.
