Eupatorium serotinum, Late Boneset



While E. serotinum looks a little unappealing for much of the year, but pollinators of all kinds love its blooms in the late summer/fall. If in a garden setting, you may want to deadhead them as the fluffy seeds are very viable and spread aggressively. It is an excellent plant for restoration, though!
