Eupatorium 'Little Joe'
[Joe Pye Weed]
Height Light
36 - 48 in. Sun Mid Summer Pink 4 - 7

Joe Pye Weed has long been used in large gardens and parks to attract butterflies in late summer and fall. However, most varieties grow very large and are difficult to incorporate into the average home garden. 'Little Joe' PP16122 changes all that! At a height of only 3-4 feet, it easily fits into the middle to rear of the flower border or even in large containers. It looks very much like a miniature version of the original, with its sturdy dark purple-red stems, rugose green foliage, and large domed panicles of mauve-purple flowers. They attract butterflies in droves (Monarchs love this plant!). This plant is also nice for adding color in the garden at a time when many other plants are finished for the season.

Care: Grow eupatorium in either full sun or partial shade. Well-drained soil is a must for this plant. Moist to average soil is fine as long as there is good drainage. Plants should be cut all the way back after they are finished flowering. They may be propagated by division in the spring or fall by cutting the base into equal sized root clumps and quickly replanting the divisions before the roots dry out. Caution: all parts of this plant are poisonous if ingested.
