Ageratina jucunda, called the Hammock snakeroot, is a North American species of plants in the sunflower family. It is found only in the southeastern United States, in the states of Georgia and Florida.


Ageratina is derived from Greek meaning 'un-aging', in reference to the flowers keeping their color for a long time. This name was used by Dioscorides for a number of different plants.
