Hemp-agrimony Eupatorium cannabinum

Also known as ‘Raspberries and Cream’, hemp-agrimony is a tall, perennial plant of wetland areas. The frothy, pinkish flower clusters appear from July to September and are very attractive to all kinds of insects, including butterflies like the small tortoiseshell and red admiral. Its common name comes from the resemblance of its leaves to hemp, although it is not related to it.
