Eupatorium rugosum Chocolate

Eupatorium

Joe-Pye Weed

Many have discovered the curative aspects of Eupatorium, yet only two have lent it their names: Eupator, a King of Pontus, and an American Indian named Joe-Pye. We prescribe these uncommon perennials for whatever ails your garden. Some delegate this rather coarse and undeniably bold member of the Asteraceae family to meadow gardens, but we’ve found that Eupatorium can provide balance and stability to formal situations as well. Best of all, butterflies love them!

Sumptuous and shiny, the crinkled reddish chocolate foliage adorns the erect purple stems of this superb new cultivar, selected by Richard Lighty from the eastern native Snakeroot. With Physocarpus ‘Dart’s Gold’ as a neighbor, Eupatorium ‘Chocolate’ adds deep rich accents to our mixed border, and in late summer, corymbs of tiny white flowers at the stem tips seem to sparkle against the dark foliage.

Blooms August–September.

Size: 4' 0" high x 2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“I found Digging Dog in a gardening magazine and am so thrilled I did. I went to their website after reading about them and was so impressed I immediately placed an order ( after checking with Garden Watchdog of course !) My plants were delayed 3 weeks due to the hot weather. Each Monday someone from Digging Dog called, explained the situation and explained the delay. What service!! My plants arrived today happy healthy and good size. I could not be happier and will shop Digging Dog much in the future.”
