Eupatorium perfoliatum


Eupatorium perfoliatum is a tall flowering plant native across the southeast. It is predominantly found in wetland sites, and grows well in full sun or part shade. This plant typically gets around five feet tall during the growing season, but dies back completely in the winter. Leaving dormant stems up until spring provides necessary over-wintering habitat for pollinators. Clusters of small white flowers bloom in the summer and attract many pollinators. Birds eat the seeds in the fall and winter. This is a host plant for a few native butterfly species. Eupatorium perfoliatum works well as a specimen plant in a yard or rain garden, for stormwater ponds, or for restoration projects.
