Joe Pye Weed

Tall, erect stems with opposite, lance-shaped, dark green leaves are topped with a large globular cluster of small white to pink flowers. The flowers are followed by small nutlets. Insects love the flowers of this plant and birds love the seeds, making this is an easy way to improve wildlife habitat. Forms colonies from root sprouting, and thanks to its height it makes an excellent visual screen along a border. A good nectar plant for attracting many butterfly species.
