Eupatorium dubium Little Joe

Little Joe Pye Weed

If you are looking for a butterfly magnet to add fluttering color to your home landscape, you just have to grow 'Little Joe'. Like its bigger brother 'Gateway', 'Little Joe' is a July through September flowering machine with big domes of flower buds at the top of each of its multiple stems packed with deep green foliage that open to lavender-pink, long lasting blossoms. Word will get out into the butterfly world and you'll be amazed at the colorful creatures lining up to get a chance at this plant's sweet nectar. 'Little Joe' is easy to grow, thrives in moist areas or around ponds, is spectacular in groups and is more tolerant of partial shade than 'Gateway'. It's an indispensable American Beauties plant!!
