BRICKELLIA eupatorioides False Boneset is a herbaceous perennial plant that belongs to the Asteraceae family. It is native to North America and can be found throughout much of the eastern and central regions of the United States.
False boneset typically grows up to a height of 60-120 cm (2-4 feet) and has multiple branching stems that are covered in small, white hairs. The leaves are alternate, lance-shaped, and have serrated edges. They are dark green in color and have a rough texture.
The plant produces small, white, and fragrant flowers that bloom in the late summer and early fall. The flowers are arranged in clusters at the top of the stems and attract a variety of pollinators, including bees and butterflies.
Tall growing from wood based, Brickellia eupatorioides produces many small flowering heads with yellow, lavender or maroon discs. Flowers are not in rays/layered form. Its root system develops deeply into the ground. Pollination occurs by wind; seeds distribution towards other locations.
In addition to its medicinal uses, false boneset is also cultivated as an ornamental plant in gardens and landscaping. It is a hardy plant that is tolerant of a range of growing conditions and is often used to provide late-season color to gardens and naturalized landscapes.
