Ageratina lemmonii, called the Lemmon's snakeroot, is a North American species of plants in the sunflower family. It is found only in the southwestern United States in the states of Arizona and New Mexico, as well as the states of Sonora, Sinaloa, Chihuahua and Durango in Mexico.


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.

The species is named for John Gill Lemmon (1831–1908), husband of botanist Sara Plummer Lemmon (1836–1923).
