Eupatorium rugosum 'Chocolate'
Common Name: Snakeroot
Chocolate leaves and shiny, deep purple stems make a wonderful contrast to explosions of white flowers in September and October. Perfect accent to the bright violets and blues found in Lobelia and Penstemon. With all this color, how could butterflies not be interested? Excellent cut flower. Be careful...this plant is toxic for people and animals! Introduced by Dr. Richard Lighty.
Height: 3-4 Feet
USDA Hardiness Zone: 4-8
