Neutral melody On May 25, 2005, melody from Benton, KY (Zone 7a) wrote:

I do not cultivate this plant. It grows wild in my area.

This is a tall plant with cream to white plumes of small flowers at the top. Found in swamps, along streambanks and damp meadows from Ontario east to Newfoundland, south to Georgia, west to Mississippi and north into Illinois and into Michigan.

The plants can get quite tall, over 6 feet in some instances and the flower plumes are popular with bees and butterflies.
