Notes for Identification:

White snakeroot (ageratina altissima) used to be placed in the genus eupatorium, as did smaller white snakeroot (a. Aromatica), a nonaromatic plant despite its name; it has less coarsely toothed leaves, the upper ones stalkless. Other similar species are late-flowering thoroughwort (eupatorium serotinum), which has long-stalked lanceolate leaves with 3-5 main veins, and hyssop-leaf thoroughwort (e. Hyssopifolium), with very narrow leaves in whorls of 3-4. White snakeroot (ageratina altissima) native habitat: woods and thickets.    various sources including the usda and lady bird johnson wildflower center, the university of texas at austin
