Snakeroot - White (Ageratina altissima)
White Snakeroot bears clusters of small, foamy white flowers, often reaching 2 to 4 feet in height. Toothed, somewhat heart-shaped leaves drape elegantly from long stems. Blooming in late summer, this plant keeps its dainty blossoms well into the fall season, oftentimes past the first frost! Fertilized flowers transform into fluffy tufts, and like miniature dandelion seedheads, they whimsically disperse seeds on the wind.
