Warning: This moisture-loving giant perennial is not for the gardening faint-of-heart! As soon as visitors gaze upon this most spectacular North American native, they insist on purchasing one. Giant Joe-Pye Weed bursts from the ground with bamboo-like stalks that quickly ascend to 12'. In midsummer, the clumping Eupatorium fistulosum is topped with massive, 1' wide, smoky-pink flower heads...the absolute favorite of butterflies! This is the true species, Eupatorium fistulosum, not one of the shorter species often sold as such in the trade.
