Plant Details

A super plant with beautiful chocolate coloured foliage, deep purple stems and white flowers in late summer.

Related to the tall Joe-Pye Weed, native to large areas of eastern North America.

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. 

Flowers in September and October.

Height: 1m

Common name(s): Ague weed, Mist flower, Thorough-wort, White snakeroot

Syn: Ageratina altissima 'Chocolate'

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
