Eupatorium fistulosum f. albidum
Queen of the meadow
This variety of Eupatorium was introduced in 2010 and like its cousin 'Glow' that we also grow, this a large and imposing plant for naturalising in wilder more informal areas of the garden.
It loves fertile, deep, moist soils looking particularly at home by larger wildlife ponds. Native to North America it's very robust and despite the imposing height needs no staking. The large, fluffy white umbels tower above most other plants and these very pretty flowers will be covered by butterflies from the moment they emerge.
Long grey-green stems are generously adorned with vibrant green leaves.
As with most giants they need plenty of food so do make sure they receive a mulch of well rotted compost from time to time.
Moist, fertile, deep
Full sun, partial shade
