Eupatorium japonicum (Thoroughwort, fragrant eupatorium, fujibakama)

¥900 (incl. tax)

Thoroughwort is a plant found throughout the main island of Japan that produces clusters of tiny, pale reddish purple flowers in summer and fall. The plant grows to about 1 meter tall and has graceful flowers and lush green leaves. It has long been known as one of Japan’s traditional seven flowers of autumn.


Tips for growing thoroughworts


Thoroughworts prefer partial to full shade. To avoid strong sun, grow them in a shady spot, such as under a tree or by a building.

This plant also likes well-drained soil. Maintain good drainage to avoid puddles at the base of the plant, which can cause root rot.


Once the plant has flowered, prune back dead branches and stems to help the plant form new buds. Cut back unwanted parts to maintain an attractive shape, as the runners can spread in all directions.
