Eupatorium purpureum

Eupatorium purpureum

Common name joe pye weed
Family asteraceae
Life cycle perennial (Z4-9)
Flowers mauve (late summer)
Size 6'
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil

Large, impressive clusters of mauve flowers are borne on tall upright plants. A U.S. native, this works well at the back of the border, for example in butterfly gardens. It is among the last perennials to re-appear in spring, so we mark its locations carefully so as to not lose track of it.
