Eupatorium Rugosum Chocolate Leaf Snakeroot

Eupatorium Rugosum Chocolate Leaf Snakeroot is a beautiful but poisonous perennial plant that is native to eastern North America. It is known for its lush, chocolate-colored leaves and clusters of white flowers that bloom in late summer and early fall. Chocolate Leaf Snakeroot can grow to be 3-6 feet tall and 2-4 feet wide. It prefers full sun to partial shade and moist, well-drained soil.

All parts of the Chocolate Leaf Snakeroot plant are poisonous, but the roots are the most toxic. Ingestion of the plant can cause a variety of symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle weakness, trembling, and seizures. In severe cases, it can be fatal.

Despite its toxicity, Chocolate Leaf Snakeroot is a valuable plant for wildlife. It attracts butterflies, moths, and other pollinators. It is also a food source for deer and rabbits.

Chocolate Leaf Snakeroot can be grown in gardens, but it is important to take precautions to prevent children and pets from ingesting it. The plant should be planted in an area where it is not easily accessible. It is also important to wear gloves when handling the plant.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
