HEMP-AGRIMONY Eupatorium cannabinum (Asteraceae) Height to 1.5m. Tall, upright and downy perennial that grows mainly in damp grassland and marshes, but (perhaps surprisingly) also in scrub on chalk. FLOWERS are dull pinkish lilac; borne in heads, 2-5mm across, comprising 5-6 florets, in rather dense, terminal clusters (Jul-Sep). FRUITS are 1-seeded with pappus hairs. LEAVES are trifoliate and borne in opposite pairs up the stem.
