Joe-Pye Weeds are bold, architectural specimen plants, perfect for making a statement in the border. Plants forms a huge clump of coarse green leaves, bearing enormous umbrella-like heads of rosy-purple flowers in late summer. This selection is a little more restrained in height, but still gets large and impressive. A magnet to butterflies, this is also suitable for planting in a meadow or at the waterside. Excellent for cutting. May also be sold under the name Eutrochium maculatum ‘Gateway’.
