Plant Information

Rising to as tall as 5 or even 6 ft., Joe Pye Weed blooms with big hydrangea-like lavender blooms on the top of every stem in late summer and fall.

You see Joe Pye Weed over most of the east in roadside ditches, since it seeks sunny wet spots. It usually blooms with the goldenrods. There are now several hybrids offered for perennial gardens, but most wild gardeners think the wild version is best.

Comments about American Meadows Joe Pye Weed Baby Joe:

The seedling arrived looking a bit pale and wilted. After a proper hardening off period, I planted it in optimal conditions. It died within 4 days.

Very disappointing!

        Comments about American Meadows Joe Pye Weed Baby Joe:

        I have had this for 3 years now. Finally figured out that the "mint" I was ripping out by the hand full was actually this plant that seems to get a late start. I have it next to spiderwort that starts early and that I cut down just in time for Joe Pye to go nuts. Several people have stopped to ask me what it was since it almost glows when everything else is dead.

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
