(Joe Pye Weed) Eupatorium 'Little Joe' PP16,122 in mid-late Summer, its sturdy purplish stems give rise to large mauve-purple flower heads which can be over 12 inches across! Butterflies love the intense fragrance. Eupatoriums are spectacular garden plants, but they are often too tall for many gardens. 'Little Joe' PP16,122 offers the same great attributes as its taller cousins, but in a smaller garden-friendly package!  An all around excellent perennial that is drought tolerant and easy to grow!

WOW! Review by Tom W | Zone: 5b
I ordered two and they have been in the ground about 10 weeks now. Original stems are healthy and blooming, and new stems are coming up, WOW!!! (Posted on 8/5/2011)
Nectar Plant Review by Matthew C | Zone: 5b
This plant is not used in many gardens in America but it is widely used in gardens in The UK. This plant not only serves as a nectar plant for some butterflies but also a host plant for the larvae. I bought mine in June of 2010 and one month later the plant is already over 2 feet high. This is a plant that everyone should have just for the butterflies. (Posted on 7/15/2010)
Smothered with Butterflies Review by Patt | Zone: 7
Love, Love, Love this plant! It was smothered with butterflies all summer long. Never needs staking and is just the right size. Just a no fuss plant that is easy to take care of. (Posted on 8/21/2009)
