When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Ageratina altissima 'Chocolate' syn. Eupatorium rugosum 'Chocolate'

(Not the best photo but...) I'd forgotten that the flowers on this plant were so pretty. I'd grown it for the foliage 🖤💜🖤

So unusual that after I bought it I realised I already had one 🙄 There's a fabulous nursery near here that has lots of unusual plants... https://larchcottage.co.uk/cms/home @rachelbrooks

Yes, its nice and tough. After reading up a bit I'm certain they're the same. It was sold to me as one of Joe Pye's famous weeds. It must have medicinal values as well then. But I love the color it provides and the height. 💕

This is going to have to compete with Crocosmia Lucifer, but I think it will cope
