An open shrub with slender branches that can reach six feet tall, a fragrant mistflower explodes in the fall with masses of white, fuzzy, fragrant flowers that act as a magnet to hummingbirds, butterflies, and a plethora of other insects. It is found on limestone hills and rocky ravines in the Edwards Plateau, Trans-Pecos, and Mexico. The light green, triangular-shaped leaves are 1 to 3 inches long and have wavy edges. Like E. wrightii, it is more tolerant of dry conditions than most Eupatoriums, although it will also tolerate poorly drained areas.

It grows partly shaded to primarily sunny sites but will bloom profusely with more sun. Fragrant mistflower makes a showy fall plant in the garden or can become used massed as an understory or edge plant in more naturalized sites. Heavy shearing in the winter will promote a denser shape and more flowers the following year since the long-lasting blooms appear only on new wood.
