This is one of our showiest native plants. Joe Pye Weed is another Carolinian Canada species that's a Butterfly and Hummingbird favourite. Tall, showy plants average 120cm (4') height and are loaded with fluffy, purplish-white blooms for several weeks in July and August. Flowers have a sweet vanilla scent. A good wetland meadow plant as it tolerates constantly moist soils - also found along stream banks and marsh edges. Best in full sun but it will tolerate part shade. Perennial&nbs..
