Eupatorium capillifolium 'Elegant Feather'

 

Eupatorium 'Elegant Feather'

Eupatorium are grown as ornamental plants, mostly across Asia. They are perennial plants with long-lasting, broad, purple to white flowerheads. These can emerge from late spring, although they mainly bloom in late summer. The blooms are held on tall stems and act as a beacon to butterflies and bees. Arguably the most impressive is the American species E. maculatum Atropurpureum Group AGM, commonly known as Joe-Pye weed. Established plants can frequently grow taller than 2m. E. capillifolium 'Elegant Feather' grows to 1.5m and has feathery foliage. The leaves turn reddish brown as the season fades. It is usually non-flowering and insignificant when it is in bloom.

Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Eupatorium are easy to grow and young plants can be set in spring in a fertile, moist soil in a sunny position, although several species tolerate partial shade. They are generally pest- and disease-free. They do sometimes look unsightly when the flowers are past their best, so they are often recommended for a wild garden or the back of a border where they are not so visible once they start to fade.
