Eupatorium hyssopifolium (Hyssop-leaf Thoroughwort)
Clouds of Hyssop-leaf Thoroughwort flowers are more likely to float over NoVA* roadsides and meadows than residential landscapes. However, these pollinator magnets can tolerate many challenging home environments: dry, (partially) shaded areas, sunny slopes, “hell strips” and gardens near the seashore.
*It also is native in DC and concentrated in the extreme southeastern corner of PA. It is common in the Coastal Plain and Piedmont of DE and VA but rare in the mountains.
