Airy Purple Blooms on a Vigorous Body

'Baby Joe' is a fine selection of Eupatorium with a compact form.
Plant Patent # 20,320.

Eupatorium grows naturally as a wildflower throughout the eastern US. Commonly known as Joe Pye Weed, these vigorous plants bear lush flowerheads full of purple florets, including every color tone from a light lavender to a deep royal purple. While the flower heads are of cutflower quality, Eupatorium gets called a 'Weed' because of its leggy habit and vigorous, sometimes invasive nature.

Eupatorium Dubium 'Baby Joe' was selected for its more compact, well-behaved habit. The shorter stems keep this Eupatorium from flopping and create a more dignified form in the bed or the back of the border. 'Baby Joe' grows to about 24 inches high and 18 inches wide, and will naturalize through its roots (just slower than its big, brutish cousins).

'Baby Joe' blooms the first year if the seed is sown early enough, and will naturalize freely to increase its glorious show year after year. It is superb for mixed beds and borders, but you may want to plant it in a setting where it can spread. The cut flowers are excellent in the vase, too!

Asking only full sun and frequent watering, 'Baby Joe' grows easily and flourishes in most settings! Butterflies flock to it, while deer turn their noses up. Zones 3 to 9.
