Ageratina altissima

white snakeroot (Eupatorium rugosum)

Ageratina is a striking summer bloomer, with fuzzy white flowers clustering towards the tips of the racemes. This species naturalizes readily and can be aggressive in sunny, moist spots, so make sure to site it accordingly. Particularly great for native bees!
