The Eupatorium ‘Chocolate Mist Flower’, Eupatorium rugosum, also known as White Snakeroot, has a shiny, deep purple stem with chocolate leaves.

‘Chocolate Mist’ is a wonderful white bloomer that stands 4’ tall with a plant spread the 29-35”.  It is a definite attractor to butterflies and bees and is deer resistant.

Eupatorium ‘Chocolate Mist’ should be planted in full sun, but can tolerate some afternoon shade.  Make sure it has a moist, well-drained area for optimal success; adequate moisture and a thick blanket of mulch are effective.

For a rich colorful display, combine this flower with Rudbeckia ‘Black Eyed Susan’, Aster ‘Woods Purple’, ornamental grasses or in a perennial border.

It is a great background plant but does need a lot of room to grow. 

Recent interest in native plants has encouraged the selection of more garden-worthy specimens such as Chocolate Mist!
