The Plant store is now closed for orders.

  • I'm planning on one last round of sales toward the end of September of plants that I'll be potting up from a nursery bed I planted in the fall of 2022. I'll post the details and the time once I have the plants ready to go

* Eutrochium purpureum, Sweet Joe Pye Weed 

Eutrochium purpureum

Sweet Joe Pye Weed 

  • Average to high moisture soils
  • Sun to shade, thrives in dappled shade.
  • 4’ to 7’ tall, 3’ to 4’ wide
  • Mid to late summer blooms
  • Native to Ontario, Beginner friendly, Woodland and wet meadow ecosystems

New to me this year, grown from seeds from Prairie Moon Nursery 

Like most of this family, these are very large plants that attract a lot of pollinator species in mid to late summer. More shade tolerant than Spotted Joe-Pye-Weed, this is the one to plant if you have a location that receives dappled sun all day or shade in the afternoon.

Please check out the Prairie Moon listing at the link above for more details.
