Eupatorium Cannabinum (Hemp-agrimony)

I first grew this plant 10 years ago – but it wasn’t popular. Gardeners are now looking at encouraging wildlife and are always looking for new plants and this is it. Eupatorium cannabinum, commonly known as hemp-agrimony, or holy rope, is a herbaceous plant of the daisy family. It is a robust perennial native to many areas of Europe. It is cultivated as an ornamental and occasionally found as a garden escape in scattered locations.

is a butterfly magnet. And, with hemp-like leaves and tall reddish stems from which flat heads of tiny pink flowers appear in summer to autumn, it also has ornamental interest, and would suit growing in a mixed herbaceous border, cottage garden scheme or pond edge.Grow Eupatorium cannabinum in moist soil in full sun. Divide congested clumps in spring.
