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.
