Joe Pye Weed.

Joe Pye Weed is native to most of the US and is named after a Native American, named Joe Pye. Can grow to a height of 6 feet. Blooms from July to September. Prefers full sun. Great nectar source for butterflies.


Where to buy Joe Pye Weed

I highly recommend Nature Hills Nursery if you can't find it locally. Their perennials cost a bit more but they are grown in 4'' x 6'' air-pruned pots that results in healthier plants with a highly developed root mass! The price is reduced however, if you buy more plants. Nature Hills also has a free plant and seed catalog that will be coming out in December that they will mail out to you.

Nature Hills sells the 'Gateway' variety of Joe-Pye Weed, which is smaller - only growing to a height of 4 feet. You can read more information about Joe-Pye Weed 'Gateway' on the Nature Hills Nursery site or to order. Or order by calling 1-888-864-7663 using the Source ID: 86642!
