Joe Pye Plant
Joe Pye Plant - Eupatorium purpureum. This hummingbird and butterfly-attracting plant has showy tufts of vanilla-scented mauve and pink flowers; it is native to woodlands and thickets from zone 4 to 9. When crushed, the serrated leaf blades grow in a whirl and have a scent similar to a crisp apple. Several monikers know it: Sweet Joe-Pye, Kidney Root, Queen of the Meadow, Purple Boneset, and Gravel root. It will grow full sun if there is ample moisture but prefers partial shade in fertile, well-drained soil.
Joe Pye Plant doesn't tolerate hot, dry weather.
Because standard varieties can reach heights of 7 or more feet, this wildflower beauty needs a radius of 2-4 feet to avoid overcrowding. The shorter dwarf variety maintains a more moderate height of 2-3 feet and a spread of 12-24 inches. A late bloomer, this prized perennial, medicinal herb shows off in late summer to early fall from July to September. It doesn't need much care, but a hard pruning before winter will keep the plant well-managed, and its root ball can be split in early spring or late fall. To encourage a bushy appearance, Joe Pye can be cut to half its height in early summer.
