Eupatorium saltuense Fernald. Phen: Aug-Oct. Hab: Upland forests, woodland borders, marsh edges. Dist: Known from e. and c. VA and NC
Origin/Endemic status: Endemic
Taxonomy Comments: Considered by some to be a hybrid of E. album and E. altissimum. Schilling (2011) had complicated and unclear results regarding the appropriate taxonomic treatment of E. saltuense, suggesting that additional research is needed to determine if it should be regarded as a species, and, if so, its origin and distribution. Reported for nc. WV by Harmon, Ford-Werntz, & Grafton (2006).
