Xerces Society describes wild quinine as a “weird and wonderful plant for pollinators”. We think that is the perfect description! The tiny white flowers of this eastern US native support a multitude of pollinators from beetles to solitary wasps. Though the flowers are tiny, this plant is quite tall - rising to 4' at maturity. Foliage is coarse but aromatic. Self-sows prolifically and grows happily in most conditions in full sun. Seed heads remain attractive through winter and should never be cut back prematurely.
