Eupatorium Odoratum shrub

Eupatorium Odoratum shrubThe Eupatorium Odoratum is a greenhouse shrub which bears sweet-scented white flowers in August, continuing in bloom for a long while. It may be planted out at the end of May, but must be lifted before the frost comes.

When flowering ceases, give less water and prune hard back. It grows well in peat and loam, and is increased by seed or by cuttings of the young shoots in spring in bottom-heat.

Pinch back freely until the end of July, leaving all growth after that period. Their height is about 2.5 feet.
