Eupatorium maculatum Atropurpureum

Joe-Pye Weed

This plant sports rosy-purple heads of flowers, which are extremely attractive to butterflies and other beneficial pollinators, in late Summer. The umbrella-shaped flower clusters are followed by fluffy seedheads which continue into winter, providing food for birds. Forming a huge clump of dark green leaves with burgundy stems, Eupatorium maculatum Purpureum is quite a large, architectural plant making it suitable for the wild meadow garden or at the back of a mixed border. Looks good with grasses. Joe-Pye Weed is happiest in moist to wet soil so well at home in a bog garden or by the water's edge. Makes good cut flowers, too.
