Eupatorium maculatum (Eutrochium) - SPOTTED JOE PYE WEED (for medium moist to wet soil in sun)

Product Code: EUP-MAC-X
Shipping: Calculated at Checkout
$6.99

Architectural perennial and butterfly magnet for medium-moist to wet soils in sunny or mostly sunny locations.

Reaches usually about 6' of height and in time spreads wide to about 4' of width (leave some room around).

For spotted joe pye weed are typical large leaves, rather glossy, in clusters of 5 (up to 12" long) and flat corymbs of dusty-rose flowers (up to 7" across and often slightly fragrant) and sunny to mostly sunny habitats with rich, fertile moist to wet soils - this Eupatorium is the most tolerant to water logged soils! In summer droughts the leaves usually scorch (in nature it prefers somewhat cooler positions or with constant moisture in the soil).

Sturdy stems rarely need staking, flowers for week in July to August and attracts nectar seeking insects like bees, bumblebees, long-horned bees, leaf-cutting bees, bee flies, butterflies (including Monarchs), skippers, and moths. Some bees feed on pollen too. Host plants for several bugs and beetles. Seeds feed swamp sparrows.

Full sun, half sun (up to half shade), prefers rich loamy soils, tolerates clay. Loves moisture (moist to wet soil), but will grow fairly well in medium moist soil. Clay, sandy soil tolerant.

Hardy in zones 3 to 8. Deer and rabbit resistant plant. Native wildflower in many states, except west and southern states, see the USDA distribution map.

Tough and pest free perennial with excellent ecological value, beautiful structural plan for sunny borders, meadows, cottage gardens, rain gardens, water bodies banks, wildlife gardens, pollinator or butterfly gardens.Good companions are for example Aster, Chelone, Filipendula, Heliopsis, Helenium, perennial Helianthus, tall Phlox, Physostegia, taller grasses like Andropogon gerardii or Panicum virgatum.

Great cut flower.
