These leaves are long and about one-third as much across; they are broadly elliptic to broadly elliptic-oblong in shape and smooth (entire) along with their margins. Each small flower is about 2-3 mm. across and 3-5 mm. long, consisting of 5 white petals.

Planting and care

The preference is full sun and wets to mesic conditions. This weedy plant adapts to mildly acidic to alkaline soil containing loam, clay-loam, or clay-gravel. It readily tolerates flooded conditions during the spring, while tolerating drought later in the year. By late summer, the lower leaves of this plant turn yellow and begin to fall off as its condition steadily deteriorates. In moist open areas, clonal colonies can spread aggressively by underground rhizomes.

Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade
Soil: Well-drained soil
Water: High
Temperature: 25 degrees C to 30 degrees
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Hemp dogbane

  • Dig a hole 2 to 3 times as deep as the bulbs are high and set the bulb in the hole pointy side up. Fill the hole with soil and tamp gently.
  • Start with pruning shears for smaller growth.
  • Use loppers, which look like giant, long-handled shears, for growth that is more than half an inch thick.
  • A small pruning saw is handy, as it cuts on both the push and the pull.
