Agrimony

Still working on the specific variety… seems to be either Agrimonia striata or Agrimonia gryposepala… there seems to be a buncha agrimonies  with very little difference between types…

In the winter, this plant has a similar appearance to Pedicularis canadensis (Wood Betony).

Joe pye weed (Eutrochium fistulosum)

These plants get like 10 foot in height… Butterfly plants are important, but this one really is out of place in a small bed…

The eutrochium purpurea seems like a better plant for the small garden… I’m hoping to cross them.

Sassafras drupes… Mockingbirds are going nuts over these…

I tasted a few of them… Tasted like a pine tree… Greene Deane says that the drupes aren’t edible.
