Product Details

Product Details

Now small gardens can include a late-summer display of our native Joe Pye Weed. 'Baby Joe' bears the same ample lavender-rose flowers as its taller cousins, but on shorter stems that won't flop. A favorite of butterflies, but not of deer. PP 20,320

Eupatorium is a genus of about 40 species, most of them native to the eastern United States. They have long been grown where the garden meets the wild. Recent interest in native plants has encouraged the selection of more garden-worthy specimens and holds the promise of more to come. For more information, click on Growing Guide.




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

A viewer from Connecticut

When this arrived, it was just a seedling - I was going to plan the following day, but it did not survive - very disappointed in quality.

I am sorry you were not pleased with the overall size and quality of this plant Louise and it did not survive planting. As it is guaranteed I will be contacting you via email regarding compensation.

Great plant in poor soil

Linda the lacksidaisical from Easton, MA

I planted this in poor soil in southeastern Massachusetts. I also gave it as a gift to my Dad, who has great soil in New Hampshire. See the picture to see how big "Baby Joe" can get in good soil1!

Slow To Wake Up But Worth The Wait

dianethegardener from Plato Center, IL

This is a great plant for mid to back of gardening beds. Like Joe Pye Weed, it is slow to pop up (I'm in Zone 5 and both Joe Pye & Little Joe are just a couple inches out of the ground in late May.) Both require water, even established plants, especially in drought/hot periods. They don't mind wet feet. At about 3 feet, Little Joe rarely gets damaged in summer storms/high winds. Very colorful, looks great w/rudbeckia, taller grasses, and other late summer bloomers. Didn't give it 5 stars only because it usually requires above average watering.

Latin Name Pronunciation: yew-puh-tor'ee-um   

Eupatorium thrives in evenly moist soil in full sun, but tolerates average garden soil and very light shade. Plants will perform best in soil amended with compost and aged manure with regular watering. Once established, though, plants are quite hardy and drought tolerant.
