Gateway Joe-Pye Weed

Eupatorium maculatum ‘Gateway’

This Joe-Pye Weed is native to North America, and is generally found along roadsides and in ditches. It blooms mid to late summer with huge rose-red flowers atop tall foliage with wine colored stems. Give it room in the garden as it attains a mature height of up to 5-6′ and almost as wide a spread. Full sun is best and quite tolerant of moist soils.
