September Flower of the Month

White Snakeroot (Ageratina altissima)

This native plant, commonly known as White Snakeroot, for the mistaken belief that the roots were a treatment for snakebites, is found on the edges of or in open wooded areas and blooms from late summer into late fall.  All parts of this plant are poisonous.
