Spotted Joe Pye Weed
One of our many choice species for butterflies. This tall upright perennial grows from 4-10'High x 5'Wide depending on moisture and nutrition. The showy flower clusters are presented in a large open panicle from summer to late autumn and are pink to wine color. The tall stalks with large whorled leaves support the 18" flower clusters that attract swarms of swallowtail butterflies. A real magnet for Swallowtail butterflies when this native reaches maturity and produces 4-8 flowering stalks. The giant size of the plant and its whorled foliage can evoke a tropical atmosphere in the landscape. It prefers moist sunny locations. This species will grow from Canada to Florida.
We also have E. dubium 'Little Joe', which is a dwarf form of the species dubium. Exactly like the species in every way except the mature size on 'Little Joe' is 3-4' tall x 2-3' wide, a great size for most garden landscapes. Please specify which one you prefer.
