Magenta snakeroot

(Eupatorium purpureum)

The Latin name of the plant is associated with the name of Mithridates Eupator, the king of Pontus. Allegedly, the king used the flower as an antitoxin. However, in 63BC, he nonetheless died from poisoning. Snakeroot blooms in late summer with large fluffy clusters, and then the faded plants become silvery-white. The dry flowers remain beautiful all winter long.
