Eupatorium dubium 'Baby Joe' Plants
Eupatorium 'Baby Joe' is a more refined version of the species making it more garden friendly. Eupatorium, or Joe Pye weed are commonly used to attract butterflies and pollinators in the later part of summer and early fall. These US natives are a butterfly magnet when in bloom and are texturally appealing in the landscape even when the seed heads have dried in late fall. We find songbirds feasting on the seed heads throughout winter as well. A choice plant for the mid-border or even large containers.
