Joe Pye Weed (spotted)
A butterfly magnet that stays a manageable size.
Spotted Joe Pye Weed is found primarily growing in the Northeast and upper Midwest regions of North America. Smaller than Sweet Joe Pye Weed, it reaches just 4-6 feet, which is much more manageable for most perennial gardens. The wide, fluffy, pink-purple flower clusters attract pollinators of all kinds. Easy to grow and will bloom the first year if started early.
