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 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.
