    Tall, purple-flushed, leafy stems, which rarely need supporting, are topped with large dome-shaped clusters of small pinkish-mauve flowers from late summer to mid autumn. Wonderful for adding height at the back of the border.

    Comments about Eupatorium maculatum (Atropurpureum Group) 'Purple Bush':

    This is a really attractive and useful plant for the back/middle of an herbaceous border. It took a lot of research to name and find this plant which I had seen in a landscaped garden. It was certainly worth the trouble. Tall and stately, needing no support, it has large flat dark pink flowers. It is striking and has been admired by friends and visitors - a talking point.

      This perennial takes a while to settle in but when most flowers are finishing in late summer it comes into its own.
      Tall at 3-5 ft it produces flat flower heads of small fluffy purple flowers which aren't spectacular but which last for several weeks.

      Many gardeners who are happy, even gung-ho, with the secateurs when pruning shrubs and climbers are surprisingly reluctant to take the shears to herbaceous perennials. Maybe this is because it just doesn't seem quite right to be cutting back all that new
