Joe-Pye (I don't call it a weed) grows abundantly in our area.
It’s a great addition to nearly any garden and a must have for wildlife lovers,
attracting a multitude of butterflies with its sweet nectar.
Joe-pye weed flowers were named after a New England man that used the plant medicinally for helping people with typhus fever. In addition to its medicinal properties,
both the flowers and seeds have been used in producing pink or red dye for textiles.
the flowers have a light vanilla fragrance that becomes more intense when crushed.
