Eupatorium perfoliatum (Boneset) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these only for gardeners who have experience with seeds that may need a chilling period to germinate. The easiest approach is to surface-sow the seeds in a pot in fall to early winter, setting them outdoors in a spot protected from mice so they can get a natural chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring. If you sow after January, give the seeds an artificial chilling period of about a month.

It is possible that these seeds could germinate if you start them in warm, bright conditions. But if you do that and no seedlings appear after a month or so, then give the pot an artificial cold period of about a month.

The germination rate is naturally low, apparently, so I will include many extra seeds in the packet.

Note that this information will not be on the seed packet you receive.

Boneset (Eupatorium perfoliatum) is a distinctive addition to the many spiky and daisy-form flowers of the mid- to late summer garden, with broad, fluffy heads of tightly packed, tiny white flowers that attract many different pollinators, including various bees, flies, and butterflies. The upright stems normally reach about 4 feet tall (though possibly up to 6 feet) and have opposite leaves that are joined at the base, surrounding the stem. Native to much of the eastern half of North America. Full sun to partial shade; prefers moist to wet soil. Perennial; Zones 3 to 8.

Collected in mid to late September 2022. At least 15 seeds. Unknown ecotype.
