Product Details

Product Details

Now small gardens can include a late-summer display of our native Joe Pye Weed. Eupatorium dubium 'Baby Joe' bears the same ample lavender-rose flowers as its taller cousins, but on (somewhat) 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 to see a 3D model of this item

1. Click on the 3D Model image in the image gallery.

2. A pop up will open with the 3D model of the item. You can move the 3D model around with your mouse if on a computer or with your finger on your device. The 3D model represents a mature plant that is approximately 3 years old.

How to use (AR) Augmented Reality to see this item in your garden

1. Make sure your device has a camera and is connected to the internet. If you want to see the item in your garden and are on your computer, click the 3D Model image on your computer and a QR code will open that will allow you to open the link on your device.

2. Once you have clicked the 3D Model image on your device, go outside and face your device camera toward where you would like to see how the item will look in your garden.

3. To see the item in your own garden, click on the [AR] link in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. You might need to wait a few seconds for the AR experience to load. This only works from a device with a camera such as a mobile phone or a tablet.

4. Allow your device to access the camera, if prompted.

5. Point your device's camera at the area where you want to place the plant or garden.

6. The website will use Augmented Reality to place a virtual image of the item in the space you are looking at through your device’s camera. You can adjust the position of the virtual item by using two fingers to resize the item, or one finger to move the item around the screen, until you're satisfied with how it looks. To get an accurate sense of the size of this item, we recommend measuring out the area where you would like to plant it (the spacing for this item is 15-18"), and staking or flagging the borders so that you will have an accurate idea for the mature size of the item while using AR (the magnifier only enlarges the 3D model of the item, it does not change the actual size of the item). The 3D model represents a mature plant that is approximately 3 years old.

7. Move your device around to view the item from different angles and get a better idea of how it will look in your garden.

8. Once you have everything lined up, take a screenshot or tap the screen to show the AR experience controls and press the white circle to take a photo of the AR image to save it for future reference.

9. If you decide to purchase the item, you can use the AR image as a reference for placement in your garden.




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. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the 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.

Not deer resistant

I bought several plants for fall 2020 planting. Only one came up. It did very well until deer took off half of the young plant. It sprouted from the remaining stem, but was eaten again after being sprayed by a deer repellent.

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.

Arrived dried out and shriveled up

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.

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.
