Endangered in its native range, Appalachian Bugbane produces 4 foot tall white flowers spikes late in the season. The foliage will get about 2 feet tall and is more substantial than A. racemosa, looking more like maple leaves. While it prefers alkaline soils, it will tolerate slightly acidic soil with amendments.
