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.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

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.

WHEN WE SHIP

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. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

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.

two of three were very sad looking

I received my order of three plants yesterday evening. Two were yellowed and sad looking. They were all very dry. One looked healthy.
I put them in the ground today. Hopefully they will adjust and survive.
I don't know how to upload the photo but it's not encouraging and very unlike WFF
But others have complained earlier.

Terrific Baby Joe

Have had this in the ground a full year since first purchase, and it has grown beautifully and in its own way, bountifully.

Sometimes when I order the plants are tiny and I think: how is this ever going to look beautiful. But for its first full season, Baby Joe Eupatorium dubnium has become this beautiful flowering plant, full-sized for its type. Thank you. No real maintenance to speak of on my part other than following the planting instructions.

Beautiful plant!

We got this plant in the spring of 2017 as part of a collection to bring butterflies. The collection does that (and lots of honey bees also). The plant was in good shape when we got it (unlike one of the other reviewers), and grew well the first year, and since.
It's not quite ready to bloom this year, but it has become HUGE (chest-high), and is an absolutely gorgeous plant.

White Flower Farm

This plant arrived with 2 others for my pollinator garden. The other two were moist and dormant; this one's soil was dry as a brick, all the leaves shriveled and crisp. I soaked it in water overnight and planted it. Now it looks all dead and brown. Will wait to see if it's still alive and will grow in the spring, but upon arrival, does not look hopeful. I will update this review in the spring. For this much money, it should have been packed properly.

I am sorry to learn this plant was of poor quality when received. As all plants are guaranteed to arrive in good condition I have contacted you by email regarding compensation.
Sincerely,
Cathy

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.
