Eutrochium maculatum / Spotted Joe Pye Weed


Spotted Joe Pye weed has deep pink blooms set over dark green whorled foliage and stems. It’s a fantastic focal point in plantings, as it is in the streambanks, fens, and wet meadows that are its native habitat. Smaller statured than its other Joe Pye kin, it makes an ideal subject in a wildflower garden or small meadow.

Formerly classified as Eupatorium maculatum.
