It is found in pine flatwoods, sandhills, hammocks, upland mixed woodlands, and along roadsides and stream banks throughout Florida’s peninsula and eastern Panhandle. It blooms in late summer through early winter (typically September through January), attracting a variety of butterflies, including hairstreaks, Julias, skippers and crescents. Bees and hummingbirds like it, too, but the plant is poisonous to both humans and livestock if ingested. Like other members of the Eupatorieae tribe of the Aster family, Hammock snakeroot’s flowers have no ray florets only disk florets are present. They are white, tubular and born on in flat-topped clusters on branched stems. Leaves are petiolate and deltoid to narrowly rhombic with serrate margins. They are oppositely arranged and often drooping. The species epithet jucunda comes from the Latin jucundus, which means “pleasing” or “delightful.”</dd> <br /> <dt><b>Family</b></dt> <dd><i> Asteraceae</i></dd> <dt><b>Native Range</b></dt> <dd>Eastern panhandle and throughout peninsular Florida.
