When I was in HD buying my Ninebark, I saw this perennial with purplish foliage. The tag name was 'Boneset'.
Hmmmm....never heard of a perennial with that odd name. The tag also said "TALL HEIGHT" and "DEER RESISTANT". I decided to buy it.
Once I got home, I did what any respectable gardener would do--I goggled it.
I found out its common name is 'White Snakeroot'. I have heard of Snakeroot. I looked further and I saw pictures of it in bloom. The flowers reminded me of Ninebark blooms.
I read that it gets about 4 feet tall at maturity. I decided to plant it here to break up all the green:
Right now it is so small you can barely see it. If it gets 4 ft. tall, I think it will be perfect.
Do any of you have this plant? I would love to hear what you think of it. If you have a link to a picture in your garden, I would love to see it!
