Info

Numerous creamy white flowers sparkle against the dark maroon to bronze foliage in late summer. This is an excellent accent plant to combine with pale green, gold foliage or silver foliage. Or use it as a foil for pale lavender or pink flowers like penstemons. Plant in part sun/part shade for best leaf colouration.

Sumptuous and shiny, the crinkled reddish chocolate foliage adorns the erect purple stems of this superb new cultivar, selected by Richard Lighty from the eastern native Snakeroot. With Physocarpus 'Dart's Gold' as a neighbor, Eupatorium 'Chocolate' adds deep rich accents to our mixed border, and in late summer, corymbs of tiny white flowers at the stem tips seem to sparkle against the dark foliage.

White Snakeroot. A release from the Mt Cuba Center in Delaware and selected for the richly chocolate colored foliage. This is a very hardy perennial and well named because just like sex, chocolate sells. (I've notice that often one leads to the other) Mid to late summer broccoli heads of small white flowers. Low maintenance.
