Hyssop-leaf thoroughwort Interesting Notes

Hyssop-leaf thoroughwort is attractive both in bud and flower. This underused perennial is a perfect compliment to a grassy meadow. The buds show color for a few weeks before actually opening, producing clouds of tiny white flowers from late summer into autumn. These flowers are borne on top of the 1-3’ tall stems. The very narrow leaves are whorled around the stem lending itself to a very finely textured plant. Eupatorium hyssopifolium grows in a variety of soil types but requires good drainage. It is extremely attractive blowing in the wind with grasses and perennials including Schizachyrium scopariumAndropogon virginicusRudbeckia fulgidaSymphyotrichum leave, and Liatris spicata. - Mt.
