Eupatorium perfoliatum is a North American native plant, perfect for damp, woodsy garden areas. The frothy masses of white flowers attract beneficial pollinators and butterflies like mad. This herbaceous perennial is native to streambanks and meadows of the Midwest. Rain gardens, pond areas, cottage, and woodland gardens are great homes for Common Boneset to display its blooms and deep-green foliage. Although it is known to be a traditional medicine plant, all parts of the Common Boneset are toxic.

Common Boneset looks great massed in large groups or left to spread in open areas of the garden. The blooms last late into the summer after many other perennials have finished, while the deep-green foliage stays fresh and inviting from spring to fall. The late flowers make a perfect food source for honeybees preparing their hives for the winter. Boneset looks great massed in large groups or left to spread in open areas of the garden. Maintenance for this native is almost zero, with little to no fertilizing required.

Common Boneset Care

Plant Boneset in a position that has naturally moist, well-draining soil. Next to a stream bed or near a boggy area is perfect. The soil pH needs to be as close to neutral as possible, but the soil texture can include clay to sandy types. Boneset tolerates part shade but not dry shade like under pine or deciduous trees. Supplement the rainfall with at least 1 inch of water a week, using drip irrigation or soaker hoses. Watering will need to be supplemented during periods of hot and dry weather during the summer. Common Boneset will benefit from annual mulching around the root zone with organic compost or shredded leaves. 

No pruning or special maintenance is required. Cleaning up spent top growth in late winter or early spring is the only upkeep needed. During winter, non-migrating birds and other wildlife enjoy the seed heads and stems. Boneset is easily multiplied by root division every 2-3 years. This dividing helps to remove older parts of the plant and encourages healthy, vigorous, new growth.

Common Boneset Spacing

The mature spread of Boneset is a compact 2 feet with a height of 4 feet. Plant at a spacing of 3 feet on center between plants.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
