Dwarf Joe Pye Weed - Eupatorium dubium 'Baby Joe'

The perfect size for smaller gardens, this is a lovely midsized selection of Joe-Pye Weed. It forms a bushy upright mound of coarse dark-green leaves, bearing large umbrella-like heads of magenta-pink flowers in late summer. A magnet to butterflies, suitable for planting in moist to wet areas. The stature of this selection is ideal as a focal point in a large container or tub. Dried seedheads offer good winter interest, so consider leaving them until early spring. Flowers are terrific for cutting. Quite possibly hardy in Zone 3 or colder.

Plant in moist well drained soil. Feed in spring with an all purpose fertilizer prior to new growth. Cut back spent flowers to promote new blossoms. Cut back plants in fall to control size.
