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.

Pickups will begin the following week.

I will be offering plug sized plants for $1.25 each or 5 for $5. 

I'm in the process of adding species that I expect to offer this spring to the listings since they are starting to germinate and I'm starting to get an idea of which will be available in abundant quantities.

Since the list is much longer this year I've added several categories to help narrow down your options based on a variety of criteria.

For those who have already adopted seedlings, planting instructions can be found here.
