White Snakeroot - Organic


White Snakeroot - Organic

Ageratina altimissa 3-5' tall.

North American native plant attracts late-season pollinators with multiple flat-topped clusters of small pure white disk flowers with fuzzy protruding styles held above dark green heart-shaped coarse toothed, slightly hairy foliage. Makes nice filler for bouquets. Blooms August through October, attracting multiple species of bees, moths and butterflies. Can be toxic to mammals when eaten—most wild animals avoid the bitter foliage, but pastured livestock isn’t always so discerning. Spreads by both seed and underground rhizomes. Deadhead after blooming to let it know who’s boss.

Plant 3' apart in rich moist soil, part sun, part shade. Z3. Maine Grown.

Additional Information

Herbaceous Perennial Plants

When you receive your order, open the bags and check the stock immediately. Roots and crowns should be firm and pliable. Surface mold is harmless and will not affect the plant’s future performance. Store plants in their packaging in a cool (35–40°) location until you are ready to plant. If it’s going to be awhile, you can pot up your perennials.

Do not plant bare-root perennial plant crowns directly outdoors before danger of frost has passed. Wet and/or cold conditions for an extended period may cause rotting.
